Business & Economics: Locate a Specific Journal/Article

Essential research tools for business and economics topics.

* Locate a Specific Journal or Article

Do you want to check if the library has access to a specific journal?    Do you have an article citation from a bibliography or reading list?

* Use one of the following methods to determine whether UWM Libraries has online access and/or a print copy of the item:

 >  Journal Search:  type all or some of the journal title or browse the A-Z list

 >  Search@UW:  type all or some of the article title or the journal title


Obtain Articles Identified within a Library Database

There are several possibilities for obtaining articles identified by searching within one of the library's databases:

►  Sometimes the “full text” of the article will be available online directly from the database you are using.


►  If the full text is not available in that database, click the  button.

- This may link directly to the full text of the article in other UWM Libraries databases or subscriptions (if available) or to a call number for a print copy.

-  If not, you may be provided an option to "Request a Copy" using the library's Interlibrary Loan service.


►  To request articles that are not available at the UWM Libraries, using the library's Interlibrary Loan service.

Background Info on Specific Journals/Magazines

For many periodicals, you may be able to locate a publisher-maintained website describing the publication's scope & aims, editorial board (if applicable),  and other background information.  

Additionally, some library article databases include brief overviews of each publication included in the resource.

Another resource to learn more about a specific publication is the UlrichsWeb Global Serials Directory database.
