You may find the complete citation of an article even if you have only partial information, using PubMed's Single Citation Matcher.
- Click on the PubMed Plus icon on the Biomedical Library homepage.
- Click on the Single Citation Matcher link located on the middle of the page under Find.
- Enter all the information that you have about the article, and hit Search
- On the results page, resort the articles by changing the "Display Options", located under the search box on the right, to Most Recent.
- Once you are in the abstract view of the article, locate the PennText icon to check the availability of the journal (if you are not familiar with PennText, click here.)
- NOTE: PubMed provides access to a limited number of highly-significant journals. It will not provide results for any journals or articles it does not collect. If you don't get a result with Pubmed, you may also want to try Embase's citation matcher, which covers a broader range of title: https://www-embase-com.proxy.library.upenn.edu/#articleSearch/default
Another option is entering the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) of the article into Penn Library's Articles+ searchbox (note- original article may be at the bottom of the list if in date order). Still can't find the article? Ask a librarian!
