Journal Finder


  • Journal Finder
    To determine whether UVa provides a journal full text, enter the title of the journal in the Journal Finder's 2nd search box.

    If it is not available full text, enter the title of the journal in the Journal Finder’s 1st search box to determine if it is available in print at one of the UVa Libraries.

    If you are taking a class on-Grounds and it is available in print, you will need to go to the designated UVa library to get the journal.

    If you enrolled in the Curry off-Grounds program and the article is not available full text, you do not need to determine if it is in print at one of the UVa Libraries. Instead, submit an interlibrary loan request..


If you need a copy of a dissertation that is not available online full text, you can use the Library's free Interlibrary Loan Service to try and obtain a copy.

In addition to the databases below, you can also locate dissertations that are distributed as open access dissertations by searching Google using the the title, author. or keyword although identifying a dissertation from the retrieved results is a bit challenging due to the lack of meta tagging.

APA Style

You will need to write your research paper using a consistent bibliographic style.  Curry students usually are assigned to use APA style. However, other styles are also available.

You can learn to use RefWorks citation software by contacting a CLIC librarian at 434-924-7040. RefWorks automatically generates, for example, APA formatted citations. You can also elect to write the citations in the style you have been assigned to use, In either case, the links below should prove useful.
