Journal Articles

You have access to thousands of online journals available through Lexis+, Westlaw, and other major journal vendors, which aggregate and index articles and citations.

If you're looking for articles on a particular subject, check for a relevant research guide, which will walk you through the best options for your research.

Finding the Full Text of an Article

A close-up of search results from a database that contains the full text of some articles and only citations for others.

Most of our databases include the full text of articles, but many of these also contain entries with only citations and abstracts.

To obtain the full text of an article if you only have a citation:

  1. Check JULIEN using the title of the journal (NOT the title of the article). If we have access to the journal online or in print, it will show up in the catalog.
  2. If we have the journal online and our subscription includes the issue/volume/year you need, you can click the link in the catalog entry to access the journal.
  3. If we have the journal in print and our coverage includes the issue/volume/year you need, email the article information to, and we will scan the article and email it to you.
  4. If we do not have direct access to the journal, or to the specific issue/volume/year you need, we can get a digital copy of the article for you through ILL.
