Q

How do I search for articles in a specific journal? Why isn't the journal article I am looking for found in FindMore even though we have it?

Answer

 Not every online journal article subscribed by NUS Libraries will appear in FindMore@NUSL. There are a minority of journals/databases that do not supply article level information to be put into the search.



To look for articles belong to a particular journal.

1. Go to the Advanced Search.

2. Enter the journal title into the "From this publication" field (e.g "International journal of sociology") . Add quotes around the title to search for that exact phrase. For even more accuracy enter the ISSN instead. 

3. Click Search. As of July 2012, we see there are over 2,400 articles indexed in FindMore@NUSL  from the International journal of sociology.



 Do note that for different titles, you may get fewer results than expected or none at all.

This is because the articles in the journal might not be indexed (covered) in  Findmore@NUSL or it might be but NUS Libraries has not turned the journal on in Findmore@NUSL yet.

In some cases, coverage available may only be partial for a few years or even totally excluded by the publisher so it won't show up at all.
