ARTICLES - When you are searching for an article in a library database and you want to get the full-text of the article, there are 4 possible scenarios you could face.
Scenario 1: The full-text is available in the database you are searching. EASY! Just click the full-text link.
Scenario 2: The "Find it @ Emory" button leads you to the full-text in another database. There are two steps in this process:
Scenario 3: The "Find it @ Emory" button does not lead to the full-text, but the Libraries own the print copy of the journal.
Scenario 4: We do not have the article online or in print but you can request it using our Interlibrary Loan service. (Click the "Locate/Request Item" tab and then "Request via Interlibrary Loan" to have the request form pre-filled for you.)
You can narrow search results to the fields JSTOR uses for categorization of metadata. Each field is represented in a search by its abbreviation. The example above (au:smith) will find all items for which Smith is listed as an author. Appending ty:fla to a search ("Winslow Homer" ty:fla) will limit a search to full-length articles, and ty:brv will limit a search to book reviews.
Other frequently used field abbreviations are:
