NPMG 6116 Week 3 Discussion: Week 3

Find an article in a peer-reviewed journal

Many of the Library's research databases include articles from scholarly, peer-reviewed journals. Some databases contain only peer-reviewed journals, while others have both peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed content.  See if a database contains peer-reviewed articles.

To limit your search to peer-reviewed articles only, first choose a database to search. Once you have logged in to the database, look for a "Peer Review" limiter on the database search page.

Example of the peer-review limiter in an EBSCO database:


See the peer-review limiter in context in an EBSCO database

 

Example of the peer-review limiter in a ProQuest database:


See the peer-review limiter in context in ProQuest Central

Link to your article

The way you link to an article within a database is specific to the database in question.  Each database handles linking differently!  Here are the necessary steps within EBSCO and ProQuest databases.  Questions about linking within another database?  Contact the library!

In EBSCO Databases:

On the article abstract page, click "Permalink" from the links in the right column. The persistent link will appear on top of the article title:


 

In ProQuest Databases:

The location of the persistent link in ProQuest depends on the format of the article.

 

If the article is in both HTML and PDF format:

Click on the article title to open the full text in HTML format. 

Scroll down to the very bottom of the page.

Copy the URL from the "Document URL" section.  Make sure that the URL includes the proxy prefix.

 

If the article is in PDF only:

Click on the "Citation/Abstract" link below the citation for your article on the results list.

If you are looking at the full PDF of the article, the "Citation/Abstract" link is located above the PDF full text.

Scroll down to the bottom of the "Citation/Abstract" page and copy the URL from the "Document URL" section. Make sure that the URL includes the proxy prefix.
