Q. How can I tell where a journal is indexed?

Sometimes you want to find articles on a topic from a specific journal. There are several ways to do this.

The old-fashioned way is to simply browse through the journal. Go to our library catalog and select journal title. Type in the name of the journal, not the title of the article. Clink the online holdings links to browse issues online or, for print subscriptions, note the location and the call number to browse the print copies in the library. Many online journal sites have the capability of searching across the journal contents. 

A more efficient method is to try searching in an online index. To find a database that indexes your journal, look it up in the UlrichsWeb Periodicals Directory or ask a librarian.
