  1. Accessing Journals in Electronic Full Text Jennifer Lyon Last Updated: 08/27/08

  2. Starting From PubMed Some links to full text are available from PubMed. Click on the colored button. But…

  3. PubMed Full-Text Links • Does not include links to all VUMC-available full-text journals • Does contain some links provided by the publisher who wants you to purchase the articles • Occasionally will not work properly BOTTOM LINE: Do not assume we don’t have it if you can’t link from PubMed

  4. OVID Full-Text Links Some links to full text are available from OVID. Click on the “OVID Full Text” link. But…

  5. OVID Full Text • Does not include links to all VUMC-available full-text journals • Not all articles are available in pdf format; some are only available in HTML or ASCII text BOTTOM LINE: Do not assume we don’t have it if you can’t get the full text in OVID

  6. How to Get Full-Text • EBL Digital Library • ACORN • Worldcat • Document Delivery Service

  7. EBL Digital Library • Contains all electronic journals that EBL provides, but does not contain information on print collection • Does not contain all electronic journals provided by other Vanderbilt libraries • Does not handle journal abbreviations well: search with full journal titles • Browse journals alphabetically by title, subject or collection • May contain trial subscriptions for journals EBL is considering purchasing; some may be outdated • Will supply username and password for journal if required by publisher – ONLY source of this information

  8. Note: Finding journal full titles Use PubMed’s journal database

  9. PubMed Journals Database • Search with abbreviation to find full journal title • Note: ONLY includes journals in PubMed

  10. Alternative Sources • Ulrichs • WorldCat (access through EBL digital library)

  11. ACORN

  12. Search ACORN for Journal • Type in journal abbreviation or name • SELECT “periodical title begins with” from dropdown menu • Click Search button

  13. About ACORN • Contains full collections of ALL Vanderbilt Libraries (EBL, Science, Central, Education, Law, Management, etc.) • Contains BOTH electronic and print journals • Usually accepts journal abbreviations

  14. ‘Periodical Title Begins With’ search provides alphabetic list of available journals that begin with your query: Select and click on the title you want.

  15. Results show records for BOTH print and electronic versions IF available Print = “shelved by title” – click on details Electronic = “available online” – click on “VU Finder” button

  16. VU Finder Displays all electronic access sources for the journal Note the availability, which varies depending on source A journal may be available from multiple sources Click on the “Go” buttons to access the journal

  17. Problems in ACORN • Multiple libraries and librarians entering records, so can be redundant or have mistakes • Not all journals can be found using abbreviation: if abbreviation doesn’t work, try full journal title • If something looks wrong or isn’t working: CALL Eskind at 6-1410

  18. Examples of Problem Journals • Jt Comm J Qual Improv • Int J Clin Pract • J Accid Emerg Med • Am J Ther

  19. Jt Comm J Qual Improv • Search for this in ACORN with abbreviation – is not found • Find full title in PubMed Journals: Joint Commision Journal of Quality Improvement • Search Digital Library and ACORN with full title: journal is available in EBL in print from mid-1993 to 2002

  20. Int J Clin Pract NOT FOUND IN ACORN, BUT…

  21. Int J Clin Practi This journal can be found in EBL Digital Library, but not in ACORN!

  22. J Accid Emerg Med • Some journals undergo name changes!!!! J ACCID EMERG MED = EMERG MED J • Can ONLY be found in ACORN or Digital Library under “Emerg Med J”

  23. Only Way To Know… In the Emerg Med J ACORN record it says that it continues the J Accid Emerg Med.

  24. If you really get stuck… • Call Eskind 6-1410 • Call me 6-5787 • Email me: • If we really don’t have journal: • Order by document delivery – it is free

  25. Document Delivery
