Using a Citation to Find an Article

Last Updated: Feb 14, 2019 03:59PM CST

A citation for a journal or newspaper article looks something like this:

Robert L. Selman, et al. "Belonging to and Exclusion from the Peer Group in Schools: Influences on Adolescents' Moral Choices." Journal of Moral Education 37.2 (2008): 165-184.
 
  • Robert L. Selman = author of the article
  • "Belonging to and Exclusion from the Peer Group in Schools: Influences on Adolescents' Moral Choices." = article title
  • Journal of Moral Education = title of the journal
  • 37.2 (2008): 165-184 = volume number, issue, year of publication and page numbers

Using a Citation to Find an Article 

Search the title of the journal (Journal of Moral Education) in the Search box on the Library homepage.

If we have access to that journal, click on "Full text available." 


From there, follow the chronological listing to the issue you need.  
screenshot of journal info Our article was published in Vol. 37 Issue 2. Click that link and you'll see all the articles in that issue. Scroll to find the one you want.

When you search the journal title in the Library Search bar, you might see that we own it in print.  Come to the library and we'll show you where to find it.
 
The library might not have access to the journal at all or not for the date of the article you want. In either of those cases, you can use Interlibrary Loan to have us borrow the article for you from another library. (Usually we can get an electronic copy delivered to your ILL account.) It's free, but may take several days to arrive.
