Full-text Journal Articles

Journal articles FROM 1998 AND NEWER are available full-text in SAE Mobilus.  If you need an older one:

  • Do a search in the SAE Digital Library
  • From the results, determine that the group/content type listed as journal
  • Look at the Document Source.  That is the title of a journal.
  • Do a journal title search in the library catalog for whatever is listed as the Document Source
  • Follow the links to an electronic version of the journal (if available) or information about our print holdings
  • Sometimes the links in the Library catalog will take you to a different database and you will have to redo your search
  • Sometimes it will take you directly to a publication’s site and you will have to drill down to get the proper date

If the journal article is not available at Clemson, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan.
