 You can find an article by searching in the Library for the title of the journal in which it was published and then selecting the relevant year, volume, and issue. You can also search inside the specific journal for keywords, an author's name, or the article title.

For example, here is an article:

Du, J., Xu, J., & Fan, X. (2013). Factors affecting online groupwork interest: A multilevel analysis. Journal of Educational Computing Research, 49(4), 481-499. doi:10.2190/EC.49.4.d


Here are the steps to locate a journal and the options to search inside of it: 

  1. On the Library homepage click on Publications.
  2. Type the journal title in the Find journals search box.

    For example: 
    Journal of Educational Computing Research

  3. Click the Search button.
  4. Look for the journal entry on the results page,  The entry will have links to database(s) that have full text coverage, and the years of full-text coverage. 
  5. Click the link for the database that has the year that you need.

    Search Tip: Some databases have a delay on full text access. Pay attention to the years available.
  6. Log in with your myWalden Portal user name and password if you are prompted.
  7. Look for a place to select the year, volume, and issue that you need.
  8. This will take you to a list of all of the articles that were published in that issue. Look through the list until you see the article you want.

    Search tip: If there is a list of years, click on the year to open up a list of volumes or issues, then click on the volume/issue you need. This may look slightly different in different databases.
