Late February 2021 -- Google Scholar often becomes difficult to access during midterms. Google does not like that we have so many people going through our off-campus connection. We have to respond for a week or so by having our log in on the Find@AppState link. This means clicking on article titles will not work as it normally would. Use the Find@AppState links.
For finding articles.
Our Find@ASU button in our article databases takes you to electronic full text, if we have it.
Still not getting full text? Many full text articles are available for free in some form. If you have a distinct article title or a DOI, try a quick search in Google Scholar (and Google). We also have ILLiad to get articles from other libraries.
Having problems with accessing full text of articles?
Hey, I'm interested in examples when you cannot get full text that it appears we should have. My testing shows our linking is working pretty well, but it helps to get examples with details when things are not working. We also have a "Report a Problem" page that goes to my colleagues Allan and Andie. Thanks, JohnW, email@example.com
Does APPsearch include articles found in CINAHL and PubMed?
Use CINAHL and PubMed for most of your needs. I like APPsearch and Google Scholar too. But CINAHL is a Nursing-friendly world. And PubMed is what you will most easily have available throughout your career.
APPsearch does include CINAHL. A lot of the top results for the searches you do will be from CINAHL.
7/30/2018 -- Our Find@ASU linking to this important set of journals is not working. I'm sorry for the nuisance, but here is a temporary solution. If you are trying to access an Ovid journal (also called Wolters Kluwer), use this link into the entire set of journals. Then search on the article title.
8/2/2018 -- I'm still seeing this problem. I think in almost all cases this is a problem related to Ovid's slowness but that can sometimes be resolved by clicking through the sequence a second time. Changing browsers (and clearing history/cleaning your cache) has worked at times also. Or use the link into Ovid below and search there.
I'm sorry about the obstacles all year. Thanks for hanging in there. Maybe we'll see the golden age of information access someday. For now, Go App Nurses! --JW
