Answer

The quickest way to find articles for most magazines and journals and get a citation is probably through our EBSCO databases. It takes a few steps, but it's actually very quick:

  1. Go to Databases by Subject (link below).
  2. Select the Database List tab.
  3. Click on EBSCO Academic Search Complete.
  4. Click Publications at the top of the EBSCO page.
  5. Type in the title of you magazine and hit browse.
  6. If you see for magazine, click on the title. 
  7. Find the year on the side and click on it
  8. Find the month and click on it.
  9. You will now be looking at a list of ail articles published in that magazine that month, so now you just have to review until you find it. 
  10. The really great news is you can get a citation for the article once you find it, just click on he article title and then the cite icon.
