Last Updated: Jun 18, 2020     Views: 39

To research your topic within a specific journal or publication, you will need to first locate the journal using our Publications search, which can also be accessed from the library's homepage.

Once you've run your search, click on the name of the database listed beneath the publication. Tip: If multiple databases return, review the coverage dates to determine which is the best option for you.

The exact steps to search in each database will be different but generally follow similar steps. The following is an example from Business Source Complete.

  1. On the publication home page, click Search within this publication.
  2. When the search box appears, type AND followed by your search terms (e.g., JN "Harvard Business Review" AND leadership).
  3. Click Search.
