Databases: Finding Journal Articles: Full Text

This guide will help you search databases and journals to find relevant articles in any field.

Accessing Full-Text

Some databases contain the full text of articles and some databases only contain the citation and abstracts. To only view search results that are Full-Text, find a "Full-Text" refining or search limiting option on your database of choice.

If you do not see a link to the full text in PDF or HTML format, click on the 360 Link Check for Full Text button (360 Link Check for Full Text).

The 360 Link may...

  • Take you directly to the full text.
  • Take you to a page that indicates we have online full-text in a different database. Click the database link to access the article.
  • Take you to a page that says Auraria Library does not have online access to this journal volume/issue.
    • Click Search Skyline by Journal Title to determine if Auraria Library has the journal in PRINT form. This will search the library catalog for the JOURNAL title (not article title). You will need to determine if Auraria Library owns the year and volume of the journal that contains your article.
    • If Auraria Library does not own a print copy, on the previous page, click Request article from another Library.* A PDF copy of the article will be emailed to you within two business days.

*You will need to create an Interlibrary Loan account before requesting material.

Open Access Articles

Some articles are open-access which means they are accessible for free. Use Google or another search engine to search for the article title to gain access.
