Hello. There are a few different ways to search a journal for articles on a topic. The easiest way to find articles in journals is through our databases. To see which database has the journals you need, and then search in there, go to ResearchPort and click the Journals tab:
Type in the name of your journal and click "find journal." You will see a list of which years of the journal each database/website has. I would pick the one that covers the widest range. It will look something like this (I picked the journal called College Literature and an example, but you will enter the name of the journal you need to use):
If you click one of the links, like the first one for Academic Search Premier, it will take you to the main page for the journal in that database. You can then click the link that says "Search within this publication" in the upper left field of the page.
Other databases might look slightly different, but they should all have an option to search within a particular journal when you click the year link from within Research Port.
Notice that when you click that link, the database automatically enters the journal name in the first search box, so you should enter your search term (like Cyberbullying) in the second box:
Also, check out our subject guides (perhaps the one for Pyschology would be helpful) for more research tips.
