Searching for journal articles

Charles Seale Hayne Library - supporting your learning

You can find journal articles on your topic by searching databases like Web of Science, SocIndex or PsycInfo, links here.

You can also use Primo or Google Scholar to search for journal articles but results are not considered as extensive as when you search a subject database.

In Primo, change 'Everything' to 'Articles' and enter search terms. All results should show 'Full text available', so click on 'View It' and then on the link (please note there might be some special instructions that you have to apply after you have clicked the link). You can also expand the results to include articles you do not have access to. Simply select 'Include hits with no full text' (top of left hand column).

If you want to search Google Scholar, we recommend using the Find Databases button on the Primo home page and then the letter G. Using this route should allow Scholar to display links to some of our subscribed titles. (Please Note: not to all our subscribed titles - so we also recommend you double check by searching Primo for the journal).
