Step 3: From the search results, click on the journal title you are looking for.

Step 4: To access the journal, click on a link under the “View online” section of the journal record.

Tip: Remember to check the note underneath the link to ensure it covers the date range you need. For example, if the article is published in 2014, you need to click on the link that covers that year.
