How to Find a Specific Journal

Do you have a specific journal you want to read?  You have two options for browsing our journal collection. Everything we license, whether directly with a publisher, or indirectly when the journal is bundled in a database will be listed in either of these two options.

Option 1: Browzine. Browzine is available both as a web platform and as a mobile app.  You can find Browzine from our Databases AtoZ tab.

Option 2: Ebsco Full Text Finder ejournals database. This resource is available from the main library home page at

Tip: Unless the journal is formally known by its acronym, you may not be able to search for a journal by its acronym, ie JFAS. You may need to spell it out.

Search for Subjects or Authors Published in the Journal Literature

The easiest way to connect to our ejournal holdings is usually from within a journal citation database like PubMed, Scopus, or any of the Ebsco or ProQuest databases.  If you are searching for journal articles on a topic within one of these resources, look for a DMU purple icon or or text that reads "Find it @ DMU Library."

Example 1 (Scopus):


Example 2: (Cinahl on Ebsco)


Example 3: PubMed
