How do I find an article?

 Back

1. Finding an article when you have a citation

 (Here is an example of an article citation):

 Partridge, Julie A., Daniel L. Wann, and Jeff Elicon. "Understanding College Sport Fans' Experiences of and Attempts to Cope with Shame." Journal of Sport Behavior 33.2 (2010): 160-75.

There are different ways to find an article from a citation:

A. Accessing UA's Electronic Journals online:

  • If the journal for which you are looking is available online, links will appear as a result of your search which will lead you to databases that contain issues of that journal.

B. Looking for the journal title in the UA Libraries catalog.

  • Open a web browser and go to UA Libraries home page http://library.uakron.edu/
  • Under Research Tools select UA Libraries Catalog.
  • On the next screen select Title and type your journal title in the Search box, NOT the title of the article itself. In the example here, the journal title is Journal of Sport Behavior.
  • If the UA subscribes to the journal you are looking for, either in print or electronic format, the following screen will let you know.

2. How to find an article on a Topic

  •  Open a web browser and go to UA Libraries home page http://library.uakron.edu/
  • Under Research Tools select Academic Search Complete, a multi-disciplinary scholarly database that indexes nearly 11,000 publications and provides more than 5,300 full text periodicals.
