There are several ways to locate the full text of an article. If you need help beginning your search or how to search for a specific topic, please visit the Evidence-Based Practice guide.
Nearly all health sciences databases contain a “Find It! @OSU” button. Clicking on this button will route you directly to where the full text pdf is located if we have access to it.
This method allows you to use components of your citation such as Journal Title, DOI or PMID to find the article you are looking for. Again, simply type that information into its corresponding search box. If access to the full text is available, once you select “Find It” your page will be directed to where the full text article is located.
This method of searching for an available full text of a journal article is done very similarly to using Google itself. Simply type in any known information from your journal citation and select the result that best matches your citation information. For help including library links in your Google Scholar results, please see these instructions.
