The directions for searching within a single journal depend on which database holds the full text of that journal. 

Note: You need to first look up the journal you want to search inside.

How do I find a specific journal in the Library?

 

Once you've looked up the journal and clicked on the database that has full text available for it, you will be at the journal information page. From there:

  1. Locate a search box and enter your search terms.

    It may be labeled Search within this publication.



    Or it may have the option to search by keyword in all issue.

     

  2. If no search box exists, find and click a link labeled Search within this publication, or some similar link. 
     


     
  3. You should be on a screen with multiple search boxes.The journal name is in the top box. Leave that box as it is. In some databases it will have the field code and the title of the journal in quotation marks in the first box.  For example: 

    JN "Technology & Disability"‚Äč


     
  4.  Enter your search terms in the next box or boxes. 
  5. Click Search. The database will return articles from that journal that match your keywords. 

Search Tip: If you are trying to find articles on your topic, try searching in a database instead of within a specific journal. In a database you can search thousands or journals at once! Learn how to find articles on your topic.
