Q. How do I search for an article if I have the name of the journal, the year, volume, and issue?


To find a specific article, use the Journal Title Search to find the journal, then filter within the journal by year, volume and issue:

First, go to Journal Title Search http://library.lib.asu.edu/search/s

  • In the top box, type the name of the journal and hit "submit." The results will tell you the dates for any full text coverage in a particular database link.
  • Click on the link that contains the date for the article you need. The results will either give you a list of individual years or a group of years.
  • Click on the link that contains the year for your article. The results will usually give you a list of volumes and/or issues.
  • Click on the volume and/or issue you need.
  • When you have reached the issue that you need, the results should be listed in Table of Contents order.
  • Scroll down the list until you find the title (or page number) for your article.
