Searching

The A-to-Z title search looks only for journal titles. It does not search journal content.

Title begins with:

This is the default search. Enter 2 or more letters of the beginning of the title. The more letters you enter, the more specific the search. Initial articles (the, a, an, etc.) are ignored by the search engine. No wildcards or truncation characters are needed or valid in this search.

Example:

A search for educat will find all titles that begin with that string, such as "Educating for employment," "Education and urban society," and "Educational psychology."

Title equals:

Enter the exact title. Initial articles (the, a, an, etc.) are ignored by the search engine. No wildcards or truncation characters are needed or valid in this search.

Example:

A search for The Michigan Daily will find "Michigan Daily."

Title contains all words:

Enter one or more title words in any order. This search will match titles that contain all words. You can use an asterisk (*) to find partial words (e.g. neuro*).

Example:

A search for neuro* cell* will find "Celluar and molecular neurobiology" and "Molecular and cellular neurosciences."

 

Understanding E-Journal Finder Search Results

Sample Entry: Anthropology today  (0268-540X)
      
from 02/01/2000 to present in Blackwell-Synergy
from 1985 to 1998 in JSTOR

Each entry includes the title of the journal, ISSN, years covered, and the name(s) of the database(s) that includes the title:

Sample Entry: Title  (ISSN)
      
from <start date> to <end date> in <database>
from <start date> to <end date> in <database>

Years covered, noted as "from <start date> to <end date>," indicates years of full-text coverage the publisher makes available online, and may not be an accurate reflection of the WSU Collection.

Links to Resources:
Where possible, individual e-journal entries link to the homepage of a particular title. Otherwise, links lead to the database that includes the journal, and it will be necessary to search for the item within that database.
