Hey there,

I would be so thankful if you could try to help me with it!

You’re going to need to go to your university library and speak to a reference librarian to try to track them down. Bring in the source from which you go the references.

I agree with @janbb. These all look quite straightforward so it seems that you need to learn how to look for references. That is why colleges and universities hire librarians – to teach you how to find stuff. Go and visit your library and you will find some very helpful people and also access to databases you can’t always get to from Google.

(@janbb and I are both librarians)

Although what @janbb and @Stinley said is true, you could definitely begin with Google Scholar to see if that resource has made available any of those articles. Google Scholar is not complete, but it’s not bad. Look for these by journal title or by article title.

You might also go to your university’s library website and look at:

1) their OpenURL page. (Most use a program called SFX, but there are others) and type in the journal title. The response to that query will be a list of resources where you can read or download the full text of the article.

2) Along the same line,. most university libraries have what is called an A-to-Z list on their sites., These list all of the journals they subscribe to, paper or online. Drill down that way.

Bottom line: you can do a lot of this yourself.

(I’m a librarian too)

@elbanditoroso Yes, that’s true. I thought of suggesting Google Scholar too but she’ll probably need to access her library’s databases – either from home, as you say, if she’s sophisticated or with help.

All three of you “Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!!”.

While the advice is good, you need to keep it down while you are in here.

Ask your librarian not only to get the references for you, but to show you how to do this for yourself. You will have access to most of these via university library’s subscriptions (assuming you are a university student), and you can probably download them for yourself either on campus or at home, once you’ve learned how. This will save you a lot of time when you research papers in the future.

Articles that are not available through your library’s subscriptions will be available through interlibrary loans, which means you should have access to absolutely everything, though some papers may take a couple of days to obtain.
