If a research database provides only a citation and abstract for an article and you want the full text of the article, you can request that the Mundt Library get the article for you by using the library's Interlibrary Loan service.
Technical and trade magazines/journals may be found in the following databases.
Magazines and journals take distinct forms based on their purpose and audience. In the case of scholarly journals and technical/trade journals, they have the same audience -- a particular profession or group of people working in the same discipline. Scholarly journals and technical/trade journals are also alike in that the articles within both are typically written by professionals in the discipline. However, these two types of journals differ in terms of purpose.
Most reading is now done online, and often the articles are found separately --not in the context of the journal or magazine in which the article was published.
