Find an Article from a citation

This printable guide will walk you through the steps necessary to find a journal article on line when you have a citation.  Remember to first locate the journal ( see the middle column).  The journal finder will let you know what databases, if any, the journal is contained in and its coverage in each database.

Connect to Article--Article Linker

Connect to Article

Results from a database search are often in the form of a list of citations. Article Linker is a tool to help you retrieve full text journal or newspaper articles, connecting you to the whole article if the journal or newspaper is in an AU database. To begin, look for the icon in your results page

Since our collection includes databases from varying vendors, not all databases connect in the same manner.

  • In some cases the system will connect directly to the article.
  • Or, the page may contain a link to the article. 
  • Or, you may have to enter the Journal title into Alicat and then find the needed Volume & Issue

Review the following guides to familiarize yourself with Article Linker. If an article is not available in any AU database online then you may order the article through Interlibrary Loan. Fill out and submit your request for a journal article using the online form. The article will then be sent to your Adelphi email account in a few days.
