Search in the database for
counseling in the journal/publication name as well as the keyword
Limit your results by date. Use the Page Options drop down and select detailed so that abstracts show up in the results list.
Most of your results will be articles introducing a special issue of a journal. Read the abstracts to get an idea of what the special issue is about. Once you select the article/special issue you want to read, click on the article's title and then note the journal name, publication year, and volume/issue number.
NOTE: At this point, do not worry about whether the article is available in full-text in this database.
On the Libraries homepage, click on the yellow Journals tab and then search for the journal name.
Click on the record that matches the journal title and is listed as an e-journal.
NOTE: If you cannot find your journal, check to make sure you have typed in the name exactly as it appeared in the database. If you are sure you have typed it correctly and you still cannot find it in this search, then we may not subscribe to the journal. You will need to use the web to find a list of articles for that issue and then request the articles through Interlibrary Loan.
From the journal record, select the database that contains the year of publication you need. In this case we are looking for an issue published in 2017, so the first three access options would work.
The next step may look different depending on which database or publisher platform you select. No matter which platform you use, there should be a way for you to browse the journal archive by year, volume, and issue. For this example, we are looking for volume 45, issue 3, published in 2017.
Here's what browsing looks like in Academic Search Complete:
And here is what the same journal archive looks like on the publisher's platform:
No matter how you get there, once you select the correct issue you should be taken to a page that lists all of the articles published in that issue.
