Journal & Article Locator

The Journal and Article Locator is a tool that allows you to search for an article given a full citation or most of a full citation.

  1. Go to the University Library's homepage and click the "Databases and Journals" tab. Then select "Journal and Article Locator."

  2. Fill in as much of the citation information as you have.


  3. If  we subscribe to the journal that the article appear in and you put in all of the article's information--or use a DOI--you will be automatically redirected to the article.

  4. If the Journal and Article Locator does not have enough information (for example if you did not have a year or volume number to enter) or if the search fails, you will be taken to a Journal and Article Locator Results screen.

  5. If there is a link saying "Article Match," check to see if it takes you to the article you are looking for.

  6. If it is not the right article, you will want to find the journal to see if we subscribe to it (this is discussed in the next section).
