Getting full text
Some databases don't include the full-text of articles. When there's no full-text attached, click on , which will search the Library catalog to see if we have access to the full text either electronically or in print (paper) form.
Many databases allow you to check off a 'Peer-reviewed' or 'Scholarly Journals' button on either the left or right-hand column of the search results screen. Checking this button will help limit your search to Journals which are considered Peer-reviewed. However, editorials, opinions, commentaries, and book reviews will still appear despite the fact they are not considered peer-reviewed articles.
Important: If you are still unsure if your journal is peer-reviewed, use Ulrich's Periodicals Directory to confirm for sure!
