Communication Studies

Have a citation for an article and need the full text?

A professor or fellow student shares a citation with you, or you've read another article that includes a good citation in its bibliography.

1. Copy and Paste the title into Articles Plus. Often, the full text is right there.  

2. Copy and Paste the citation into Google Scholar.  Less often, the article is free on the internet. 

3. Look up the JOURNAL TITLE in ALICE. We'll use this article as an example:

Baker, L. R., & Oswald, D. L. (2010). Shyness and online social networking services. Journal Of Social & Personal Relationships, 27(7), 873-889. doi:10.1177/0265407510375261     

  • Identify the journal and search for it in ALICE. This article is from the Journal of Social & Personal Relationships. 
  • Use the periodical search to look for this journal and see if we have a subscription

4.  Never pay for an article! If we do not have it, Fill out the Interlibrary Loan form and we'll get you a free copy, almost always. 


If you get stuck anywhere, please let us help you.
