Searching for Magazine and Newspaper Articles with Academic Search Ultimate
Searching Academic Search Ultimate
Academic Search Ultimate is a great database because it contains articles across multiple disciplines.
When searching in ASU, or other databases, be sure to enter keywords instead of sentences.
Narrowing Your Results to Magazines and Newspapers
Once you have entered your search terms and are on the results page look on the left-hand tab for "Source Types" and select Magazines and Newspapers. This will tell the database to only display these types of results.
Navigating Your Results List
Once you open an article you can learn more about it on the record page.
1. Source: This will tell you where the article was published
2. Subject Terms: Will tell you the main points of the article. You can use these as additional keywords for your searches.
3. Abstract: This provides a quick summary of the article.
Accessing the Article
- In some cases, the article will have a PDF FullText or HTML FullText icon you can click on to get the article.
- In other cases, you will see the Article Linker icon. Click on Article Linker to see if the library has a subscription to the newspaper or journal in some other database or in print.
