Journal Finder is a tool that links full text content for journals (as well as newspapers and magazines). From the Library's homepage you can use it to search for a particular publication by title or ISSN. To do that, Please go to the Library homepage at www.Hofstra.edu/Library > Search Journal Finder. Enter the title of the journal in which you are interested. Do not enter the words "The" or "A" or "An" at the beginning of the title. If the title contains the word "and" or the symbol "&", enter it both ways if the title doesn't appear after your first attempt. Journal Finder will return the electronic research databases that contain the full content of articles that appeared in that journal as well as coverage dates. If the article is held in print format, Journal Finder will return the coverage dates of the print holdings. (You can also access Journal Finder from the green tab on the library homepage.)
If you have a citation for an article, click on the "Citation Linker" in Journal Finder to locate the full content.
If you find a citation and/or abstract of an article that you need for your research in an online database you can find the full content of the article by clicking on the Journal Finder link (or "find it @ Hofstra) within the database. Journal Finder will find and supply the best available path to the full text anywhere in the library's collection.
