From UBC Wiki

There are essentially three steps to finding a scholarly article published in a journal

  1. SEARCH in an article index for your topic (e.g. chromatin) to find the citation to an article.
    e.g. Kornberg, R.D. 1974. Chromatin structure: A repeating unit of histones and DNA. Science, 18: 868-71.

  2. RECORD the complete citation (i.e. author(s), year, article title, journal title, volume number, issue number, pages). You will need this information to locate the article as well as to write up the bibliography for your paper.

  3. RETRIEVE the article by using UBC eLink or by searching by the article title in Summon. If the UBC Library does not subscribe to the journal you need, you may order the article via InterLibrary Loan.
