How do I find articles?

Tips for locating articles at the Library.


The following steps outline how you can do a cited reference search in Scopus:

1. Enter a few citation details into the main search page. The most efficient way to search is to enter the article title in the first box. In the next search box, enter the author's last name.

2. In the search results, the record for the proper citation will display how many times this article has been cited according to Scopus. This number can differ from Web of Science and Google Scholar.

3. Click on the Find It button to access the full-text. If the Library does not have access to the article, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan.
