Looking for a specific article?

To find an individual article, you can:

  • Check your library’s catalog to see if your library has a subscription to WCJ.
  • If your library does not subscribe to WCJ or if the library’s back run does not include the particular article/issue you are looking for, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan.
  • If you still can’t locate the article you need, you can ask your library’s reference desk how to locate the materials.
  • If you are not affiliated with an institution, you can also request materials through the Interlibrary Loan department of your local public library.
