Online Journals

If you're doing research, you may need to track down some journal articles. 

Using Summon to Search for Journals

One way to track down journal articles on your research topic is using Summon.

Let's walk through an example together: 

  • Starting from the Library website, type your search into the Summon search box.  Click the red magnifying glass to begin your search.
  • On the left-hand side of the Summon screen, you'll see a variety of limiters,  like the filters you see on Amazon.
  • Since you want to look for journal articles that are available online, click on "Full Text Online" and "Journal Article" to narrow your search.
  • Click on a title that's of interest!
  1.  If you know the title of a journal article you're looking for, you can type the title into a Summon search to track it down!
  2. If you find a great article in your search, check out the rest of the journal webpage--you might find more great articles a few clicks away!
    1. ​You can also do this with Summon! Search for a journal title, and then select "Search within [journal title]?"
  3. Article citations are also a great place to find more articles.  Check those resources at the end!
