Hints for finding articles

Many of the databases will provide the article citation, abstract and full text of the article. To retrieve the full text of an article from within most databases click on the PDF or HTML icon or if not available use the Find It @SacState link, usually located at the end of an article record summary.

Finding specific journals

To find a specific journal use the Journal Titles A-Z List, or do a title search in OneSearch and limit the results to JOURNALS ( under 'Refine my Results' to the right of the screen.) ~~~

To improve your database search results try using the truncation symbol. Truncation symbols vary by database, but the usual suspects are an asterisk * exclamation mark ! or a pound # sign. Click here for an explanation on the EBSCO databases.

~~~ A great way to see what the latest research is in any subject area is to select a journal (online of course, using the Journal Titles A-Z list) and then browse the table of contents.
