Search Within Publication

Search within a Publication is a useful tool for those times when you wish to limit your search to a specific publication either because you are looking for an article that you know was published in journal xyz or because you want to see how a particular topic was treated in a journal over time.  Search within a Publication also allows users to view a virtual table of contents for a specific issue of a publication.   This function is not available in all EBSCOhost databases.

To search within a publication, first search for the publication and click on the publication name to view the publication details.

Search Within this publication is located in the upper right hand corner.

This will launch the search page with the journal name in the search box as shown below.

Click Search to retrieve all records from this journal or enter another search term to combine with this journal title.  Click on Advanced Search underneath if you want to combine the Advanced Search options.
