Economics: 73-474: The Economics of Ideas: Growth, Innovation and Intellectual Property: Find journal articles

Here are the basics of retrieving journal articles in our subscriptions or elsewhere:

eJournals A-Z - use this to see what journals we have electronically. This looks at all our electronic databases and subscriptions and finds where a particular title is held. Be sure you check the dates listed. Sometimes there are a few options - and very occasionally one of them doesn't work - so do try the others in that case.

CAMEO - our catalog: use this to see what journals we have in print. This often includes early issues of journals that in later years we picked up electronic subscriptions to.  CAMEO also contains some links to electronic journals, but is not as complete as eJournals A-Z.

Google Scholar - is the most inclusive finding tool for academic publications.  Here you can search for a particular article, as well as for academic articles on any subject. If the content is included any of our subscriptions (and even sometimes if it isn't) you can get the full text right here. Hint: try all the clickable phrases in a citation before you give up. You do need to be on campus or using the VPN for this to work.

If you’re off campus, login here with the WebVPN first to use the electronic journals or databases.

Interlibrary loan – if we don't have the book or article that you need, we'll get it for you. Use ILLiad for journal requests. This usually takes only a few days, and will be sent to you via email.

Tepper Library website - all library services, particularly geared to Tepper. There is an Economics library website as well.

Business databases – there is much of value here in addition to journals. For other topics, see all databases.
