Finding the Full Text of Articles

If an article doesn't have a full-text link in the database, it doesn't mean you can't access the article! Follow these steps to locate the full-text of an article.

  1. Look carefully to be sure there isn't a link to the full text. It might say "full text" or it might say "PDF full text" or "HTML full text."
  2. If you don't see a full-text link, visit the library homepage and enter three or more words from the article title in the search box, in quotation marks.  
    For example, to find this article:
    Foster, Jacob G., Andrey Rzhetsky, and James A. Evans. "Tradition and innovation in scientists’ research strategies." American Sociological Review 80.5 (2015): 875-908. might copy/paste "tradition and innovation in scientists'" to the OneSearch box.

  3. If Augustana doesn't have immediate access to the article you need, request it through Interlibrary Loan.
