Q. Where can I find the article Prasher et.al., published in Gene, 111 (1992) 229-233?


The most effective method to find this or any other cited article is to first try locating the journal, rather than searching the article title:


On the library homepage, type the journal title, "Gene," into the Discover search box and click the Search button.


Next, use the menu on the left to refine your search results by clicking Resource Type: Journals


If the library owns the journal, it will be in the search results. To access the article, click View Online, then click the link to view full text. 

Note: The dates of coverage are listed with the link. Ensure that the date of your article is included.


Now that you're in the database or journal website, you can either:

1) enter the article title, author name, or volume in the search bar, or

2) navigate through the Volumes tree menu, usually on the side panel.


When you have located the article, click the PDF icon to view full text or print.


Though you may successfully locate an article by searching its title instead of following these steps, this method is recommended, as it is the only 100% effective option.
