If this happens you need to search again.  Search for all or part of the article title in that database's search box.

  • If you have difficulty locating your article in a large results list, return to the search page and add the journal title and/or the author of the article you want. Also, look for options to select the date of publication.
  • If you are not able to find your article, go back to Periodical Locator and review the other options that came up. You can try using a different version if one's available.
  • If you continue to have trouble you can email us at askthelibrary@jmu.edu for help. During normal business hours there is also a chat on the Ask the Library page.

More Information

Periodical Locator always tries to get as close as possible to what you're looking for. It can't always get past a search box, though.

In addition to periodical subscriptions, Periodical Locator also includes full text articles that are found within databases known as "aggregators" because they aggregate (or pull together) full text from many different sources. Many of these aggregator databases, though, are designed more for searching by subject, not for a specific periodical title.

Some examples of aggregators include Academic Search Complete, Wilson OmniFile, and LexisNexis Academic.
