Searching by Journal Title ~Publication Finder

When you only have a journal-title for the article 

Sometimes articles are not available in full text in a database and only the journal title information is available. You can search the Publication Finder to see if Holy Family has access to that journal or magazine in order for access.

For example, you have the following citation:

Beaton, A. M. (2017). Designing a Community of Shared Learning. Educational Leadership74(8), 78-82.

  1. Go to the Publication Finder link found on the library page
  2. Click on the search bar and type the journal title in the box

If the availability of the journal is shown:

  1. Click on the Full-Text Access tab for coverage and Database information
    • Click the link that has the desired coverage for your research topic
      • For example: For Reading Teacher Journal we have coverage in Academic Search Ultimate from 02/01/1990 – 1 year ago however in Wiley Online Library we have coverage from 01/01/2011 – to the present. If an article is needed from 1994, you would select the Academic Search option but if an article is a need from the current year, you would select the Wiley Online option.
    • Please note: If accessing from off-campus, you will need to log in with your Canvas credentials in order to authenticate your affiliation with the university.
  2. Click on the year (found in your citation), then volume and issue number
  3. Scroll through the results for that issue until you find the article

What to do when the Publication Finder shows "No Results"

If Holy Family does not have access to the journal or magazine that published your article, you can request a copy of the article through Interlibrary Loan. A link to the online form is on the library forms page. If a requested article is available electronically, it may arrive via email within 2-3 days.
