How Do I Find an Article from a Citation?

 

The CityU Library’s Journal Finder helps you locate which journals are available in full-text through our online databases.

For example, you have an article citation, such as this:
Groysberg, B., Kelly, L., & MacDonald, B. (2011). The new path to the C-suite. Harvard Business Review, 89(3), 60.

 

Step 1: Open Journal Finder from the library website under "Search"

 

Step 2: Enter the journal title in Journal Finder and click "Go"

For example, type Harvard Business Review into the search box.

 

Step 3: Click on the journal title

 

Step 4: In the pop-up screen, open database link

In this example, the database is called EBSCOhost Business Source Complete. Clicking this link will take you into Harvard Business Review within this database. There may be more than one database listed, so choose the one with
the best coverage. In this example, Harvard Business Review is available in full text from 1922-present.

 

Step 5: Select “Search within this publication”


Step 6: Copy and paste the article title into the search box

Using our example article citation: Groysberg, B., Kelly, L., & MacDonald, B. (2011). The new path to the C-suite. Harvard Business Review, 89(3), 60.
