Getting the full text of chemistry journal articles
- Details of journal articles on a topic can come from database searches or simply from the lists of references in other books and articles.
- Sometimes you can link directly from a citation in a database to the article itself. If these links don't work, always search the Library catalogue for a journal.
- Search the Library catalogue for the journal title and go to its full Record view.
- For an electronic journal, note the years available (e.g. 1995 onwards) and connect through the link at Link to e-Resource (e.g. from ScienceDirect).
- For a print journal, note the years available (under Library Has and Recent issues), the call number and the location or locations.
Note also any earlier or later titles since some journals change title during their lifetime. You may need to check under the old title for the location and call number of earlier years.
- If the Library does not have the electronic or print journal, consider getting the article from another Library as an Interlibrary request. There is a charge for this service.
