On the journal's record, check for full-text options under "View Online." A journal may be in more than one full-text collection. For example, JAMA is in two collections that have different dates of coverage. Click the link to the source you wish to access, keeping in mind the date(s) that you are interested in.

4. Drill Down to an Article

After you select a source for the journal, “drill down” to the volume and issue, and then the article. Each publisher or source has a different interface and “path” to full text. This is one example, where JAMA offers the option to view past issues.
