Journal Finder

  • located at the top of the A-Z List of Databases page
  • Search on Journal Title
  • Click into Database link
  • Search on keywords from the article citation

Publications Link

  • link located at the top of the advanced search page


  • ProQuest Central - searches all ProQuest resources
    • Use the Publications tab at the top of the Advanced Search page
    • Search on the  journal name (e.g. BMC Nursing) 
    • In results, click on the publication title link to see full-text and indexing status
    • The record will show if the article is full-text for the year and issue sought
    • Search on keywords from citation in Search Within This Publication 


  • EBSCOhost 
    • choose each database separately to access Publication search - eg. CINAHL with Full-text
    • a better strategy in EBSCO is to use the field limiters option to search across all databases, or to employ the Journal Finder 

Field Limiters

  • Eg. search on the author last name (limiting the author field limiter) AND "keywords from the article title"
  • Eg. search on the journal title (limiting with source or publication field limiter) and author last name (limiting with author field limiter)
