It's hard to give a definitive answer without knowing the journal and the year of the article. If the article is from before 1995, the Library probably doesn't have an online version. That's the general cut-off date in ScienceDirect, though every journal has a different date range.

To see what years we have for a journal online, go to the University Libraries homepage ( and click the 'eJournal titles' link in the top left Search box area.  On the next page, type in the name of the journal. If we have the journal, it will show you which databases have it and for what years.

To see if we have the article in print, click on the CATALOG link in the top left Search box area on the library homepage. On the next page, chenge the Search function to TITLE and type in the name of the journal.  If we have the journal, it will come up in the results. To find what years we have, the Library location and the call number, click on Retrieve Catalog Item.

If we don't have the journal for the year you need, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). For more information on ILL, please see the link below.
