Graduate Biomedical Sciences and JHS Departments: Full Text Articles

Starting with a citation

 There are several ways to get to the full text of articles.  If one method doesn't lead to the full text, try another.

  • Copy the exact article title or PMID into the PubMed Search box on the left. Then use Full Text@UAB Libraries to get full text.
  • Try Scopus.  Put the title in quotes. Then click on Full Text@UAB Libraries.
  • Check the E-Journals list  to see if LHL has the journal online.
  • Check with a librarian.
  • If no full text is available, request the article from ILLIAD

  Search PubMed

PubMed Logo

Search Google Scholar

Get Articles UAB Does Not Have

Take a moment to create an account in Illiad and you will be able request articles that we do not have directly through the Full Text@UAB Libraries button.


Just choose Request article from Lister Hill Library and the article information will auto populate the Illiad request form.

Starting in a database


  Look for this button when you're in a database like PubMed or Scopus..

When you find a citation or reference to a specific article, the Full Text@UAB Libraries button supplies the best path to the content:

    • Full text of the article if we have it
    • Google Scholar to see if there is a free version
    • Interlibrary Loan, if the article is not available in the UAB electronic collection.

Working on the Open Web

This video shows how to get full text by using PubMed from the LHL Homepage. If your article is not in PubMed, try the Google Scholar tab or Scopus tabs, putting the article title in quotes.
