Below are steps and screen shots to show you how to find and search the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis. 

In the large search box on the Library's welcome page, type exactly: "journal of applied behavior analysis"

Be sure to include the quotation marks.  That way the words are searched for together, as a phrase.

Click on Search

The very first item in the results list is a link to the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis.  The search box just below the title of the journal can be used to search just that journal.  Type your search words into that search box.  For this example, staff  was used.  Click on the magnifying glass to perform the search.

The results screen will now only show articles from that journal.  The articles that have PDF Full Text, only requires clicking that link to access the article. 


For items that have Full Text Finder will take a couple of extra clicks.  Click on Full Text Finder

On the next screen, click on Check PubMed Central for the full text of this article

On the next screen, click on the PDF link to access the article.

Most of the archives for that journal is not available through the library.  However, most of the archive is freely available online at this link.  Then, look just below the search box for the word Advanced and click on that.


There will be a couple of search boxes.  Click on the drop down menu next to the first search box and then click on Journal
Then, type the name of the journal into the top search box:  
For this example, in the second search box, type staff
And then click on Search
You should get about 1000 articles in the results list.  To access the articles, look for a link with PDF in it.
