Where to find RESEARCH ARTICLES -- General:

Where to find RESEARCH ARTICLES -- Specialized:


  • Full-Text Journals - the “Full Text Journals” tool provides links to full-text options for articles, from a variety of library-subscribed sources. The tool may be utilized in two ways: (1) direct search by journal title, ISSN, or other journal information, and (2) browsing an alphabetical list by the first letter of the journal title. This tool is integrated with most library-subscribed databases, and is typically indicated by this icon:  Article Linker icon
  • Google Scholar - you can sometimes find an online copy of an article that is not available at UC through a public repository or other system.  Search the citation in Google Scholar, then choose "all xx versions" to see full-text options.
