The way you search for journal articles will depend on what you know about the article you're looking for.
Ask yourself: Do I know all the information about the article (title, journal title, volume issue, etc.)?; or do I just have a subject/topic I want to explore?
If you know all the information go to the Journal Search, and type the title of the journal. This will give you a choice of Databases that include the full-text of the journal. Select the database(s) that include the year you are looking for. Navigate the database to the appropriate volume, issue, and page number.
If you want to explore a particular topic, select a Database to search. Different databases index different journals. Try searching more than one and keep track of the appropriate articles you find.
