Journals

Journals are published on a weekly, monthly, or bimonthly schedule and contain academic papers written by scientists. They are the best source for original research results. All journals are now published in electronic format. 

Tutorial: Understanding Journals

Finding a Specific Journal

To discover whether the library subscribes to a specific journal, and see content in that journal, go to the Search Tools section of the Campbell Library home page. Click on the Journal Finder option.

Enter the complete name of the journal (no abbreviations) - for example, "Environmental & Engineering Geoscience."

If the journal is listed in the results, click on Available Online. Then scroll down to View Online and choose a database link. In this example there should be a link for the database GeoScienceWorld.

If you are looking for a specific issue of the journal, there is usually a way to browse volumes and issues to drill down to the desired issue.

Or, search within the journal using the Search box in the top right corner to find articles on a topic.

Interlibrary Loan

Journal articles to which we do not have full text access may be requested through our online Interlibrary Loan request system, Illiad. Articles are usually sent to your email address within a few days.
