Finding the source journal article

I was pondering over a good topic for my first post and came across this article while floating around on the Internet. One of those timely and excellent finds from directionless link clicking.

The lack of full journal information in scientific news items frustrates the ‘ease of use’ and ‘knowledge should be shared’ person in me. It’s good to know that it’s not just me who is bothered by this.

This article has lots of good tips about how to find the original journal article fairly easily and without having to fork out a lot of cash. Fantastic for those of us who want to get ideas or news from easy to read and digest sources but also can delve deeper when needed.

Thanks to Bonnie Swoger who blogs as the Undergraduate Science Librarian.
