Criminal Justice -- Resources & Services

The Criminal Justice Resources guides provide links to a wide range of resources to facilitate course work, scholarship and career development.

How to find full text articles

Step 1 

Most article databases have direct links  (e.g. a PDF or "Linked Full Text" icons)  OR indirect links (e.g., [Find It!] or [Article Linker])  to full text articles.  Try the following databases to discover the various ways to retrieve full text articles.

Criminal Justice Abstracts

 4 full text options: PDFs, Linked Full Text,  [Article Linker] & [Find It!] 

ProQuest Criminal Justice

 3 full text options: PDFs,  Full Text &  [Article Linker].


 4 full text options: View at Publisher (PDF or HTML), [Article Linker] & [Find It!] 


Step 2

If you found an article but could not access full text from the article database, use the E-Journals finder.  Simply copy the journal title from the database and paste it into the E-Journals search box.

Step 3

 If neither of the first two steps produce results, use the UC Libraries catalog to find "print" copies of the journal you need.

Step 4

 In the majority of cases you will find your articles via any of the first three methods. However, in those cases when you cannot find a copy of your article, the UC Interlibrary Loan service (below) provides an effective alternative to putting the article you need on your desktop.
