EES1100 Master of Environmental Science Research Guide

This guide will help Master of Environmental Students at UTSC access key resources for research, learn about publishing and scholarly communication, prepare for internship, and more.

Finding specific articles

You can find specific articles several different ways, including:

  • UTSC Library homepage search box:
  • Article Finder (Information below)
  • Google Scholar (Refer to the "Google Scholar" page in this guide)
  • Directly through a journal's website (Expert Tip: Search for a journal in the library catalogue, click the catalogue record link for the journal then browse/search the journal website. If you simply Google the journal website and search for an article, you likely won't be able to access the full text)

Article Finder

  1. Go to the Article Finder.Screenshot of where to find Article Finder on the new UTSC Website

  2. Enter your citation information. 

For example: Jiang & Yu. Fluorous Mixture Synthesis of Asymmetric Dendrimers. The Journal of Organic Chemistry (March 2010), 75 (6), pg. 2044-2049 Jiang, Z., & Yu, Y. B. (2010). 

HINT: You need to enter either a journal title OR ISSN OR DOI OR PMID (the fastest way to get to an article is to enter its unique DOI or PMID if the article has one) before you select the "look up" button. 

If you don't have a DOI or PMID, search using the journal title (listed as 'source' in Web of Science) and include the volume, issue and page numbers for the article - article titles are often very long in chemistry so I don't usually enter them into the form :)

3. You'll now be sent directly to a page where you can view/download the full-text article (this page will look different depending on the journal provider). If the library doesn't have full-text then a list of other options (search the catalogue for a print copy, interlibrary loan, etc.).
