How to search within a specific journal when you know the journal's title (instead of using a database)

Sometimes you will want to search within a certain journal (e.g., Gender & Society) instead of within a database (e.g., SocIndex) that covers dozens or even hundreds of journals.

If you discover an article you'd like to use in your research, you might try to search for other articles published within that same journal. Additionally, you can ask your professor or librarian for journals they would recommend for finding relevant sources for your topic. 

To search within a specific journal:

  1. Go to the Research tab on top of the page
  2. Select Journals from the drop-down menu [as shown in the image below]
