Browsing Journal Sites

Online journals carry the look and feel of their printed counterparts. You will likely arrive at your journal site through a link from the supporting society Web site or through some other outside link.


The first page you encounter on the journal site is the home page. The content area of the home page presents links to the current issue's Table of Contents, the latest society news and articles, and useful site features, whereas the local menu provides shortcuts to major features and sections of the journal.

Getting Around

Click any Current Issue link to access the current issue Table of Contents. Find an article of interest, then click the link to any format type (e.g., Abstract, Full Text, or PDF) to access article content. Alternatively, you may click any hyperlinked text or button graphic to access other specified content.


Use the local menu, to the left of the content area, to access and browse through journal issues, to make journal-specific searches, to access standard journal information, and to purchase subscriptions.


Search within a specific journal to quickly target the information you're looking for. Clicking any Search This Journal or similar link opens the search form preset to search the journal you are viewing. More about Journal Search...


Return to the journal home page at any time by clicking JOURNAL HOME at the top of the local menu.
