Suggestion

If the journal you want is in the Library, you could find that journal on the shelf and browse through some of the issues to find articles.

If you're looking for articles in a specific journal and you know the title of that journal, begin by searching for that journal title in Blais.

If you find your journal in Blais

As an electronic journal

Electronic journals are in Blais as “online” or “electronic resource,” and you can usually go directly to that electronic journal and search for articles within the journal.

Many electronic journals offer both the option to search the journal by keywords and to browse the journal issue by issue.

As a paper journal

If you find the journal in Blais, but it's not an electronic journal, go to the list of databases by subject, choose an appropriate subject, and choose the database that seems most relevant.

Search the database you have chosen using the journal title as one search term and your topic as another search term.

Example: if you use the database PAIS to search for articles about women in the journal Critique: Critical Middle Eastern Studies, you would search with the journal title as source and your topic word as a keyword.

Note: most databases use either source or journal name to identify and search for the journal title.

If you don't find the journal in Blais

The Library does not subscribe to the journal you want; however, you can get articles from the journal by requesting them through Interlibrary Loan.

To find articles in a journal the Library does not own:

1. Go to the list of databases by subject, choose an appropriate subject, and choose the database that seems most relevant.

2. Search the database you have chosen using the journal title as one search term and your topic as another search term.

3. Once you have the article(s) citation information (journal title, volume number, issue number, year, article title, article author, and pages), use Interlibrary Loan to request the article(s) you want.
