Government: Journals

A guide focused on resources for government research.

Finding an Article from a Citation

When you have a citation, but aren't in a library database, you will need to see if the Library has the journal.  To do this, you will need the journal title to determine if we have the journal online (via our EJournals search) or in print (a journal search in Lens or the Library Catalog). 

Below are examples of citations from different fields to help you identify the journal name.

Enter "America Literary History" in Lens as a Journal search, or in the EJournals tab on our website.  Look for 2005, volume 17, number 1.

In some citations (especially in the sciences) the name of the journal is abbreviated.  You can find this using ISI's Journal Title Abbreviations or ask a librarian. In this case, the journal name is Space Science Review., volume 104, issue 1-2, published in 2002..

Enter Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica as the journal name in Lens or the EJournals list.  Look for the year, 2004, and volume 110, issue 5.
