First of all, to get full access to online journals that we subscribe to at the Palmer West Campus, follow these prompts:

1.      Go to http://palmer.edu

2.      Click on Libraries under the Academics section (on the bottom of the page)

3.      Click on Catalogs and Online Databases (on left of page)

4.      Click on West Campus under Databases (middle of page)

5.      Click on A to Z ejournals list (bottom middle of page)

6.      Type a part of the journal name into the Find: box

7.      Click on Search

If you type "JMPT", you will get:

Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT)
ScienceDirect 1999 to present Your Access: 1/1/2007 - to present

 

If you use a wild card * for instance type in "ortho*" and you will get a list of all the journals that have "ortho" in any part of the words in the title. This is great because orthopedics is also spelled orthopaedics. The list will also include orthopedist, orthopedics, orthopaedica, and so on.

 

If you type "spine", you will get a list of all the journals that have the word "spine" in it.

 

Some of the different subscription hosts are:

EBSCO Open Access Journals

Journals@Ovid

Academic Search Premier

ScienceDirect (see below for a known problem with this one)

 

When you click on the journal, another window will pop up that will link you to the proxy server. This is where you need to enter your Palmer name and password.
