Frequently Asked Questions


Why didn’t the Find It full text link lead me to my article or journal?


There are several possible reasons why the article/journal is missing:

  • Sometimes the article citation appears in a database before the publisher has made the full text available.
  • The publisher or author is withholding or placing an “embargo” on the full text of this article/journal within the particular database.
  • Find It uses the citation information (volume, issue, and page number) to attempt to link directly to the article or journal. If there is a typographical error in the citation, Find It cannot find the article/journal.
