Once you find your research journal articles you will need to find the full text of the article.  There are several UT databases which can help you.

Fint it at UT

You will find this icon in most health, nursing, and medical literature databases and can use it to locate the journal where your reference is printed. It will open a location box which will list various links to the journal, either in the Library Catalog or in a full text database

Library Catalog

Online catalog of all holdings for the University of Texas at Austin libraries. This catalog will tell you whether or not the journal is located in a UT library, what the call number is, and what issues are available. In order to find a journal, click on "Journal Title" in the black area on the left.  Then enter the journal title in the first box.

The Library Catalog also shows direct online connections to full text databases. If you do not find a full text link here you can also check UT Library Online. Find a Journal.

UT Library Online. Find a Journal

This database contains a listing of full-text electronic journals and newspapers which are available online through the General Libraries, University of Texas at Austin. Enter a journal title or search for the journal name from the alphabet and the computer will eventually take you to the database where the journal is indexed and available in full text.

NOTE: Some of the full text databases have only selected articles from certain journals. They may choose only the articles which pertain to the subject matter of the database. Also the date coverage is different for each full text database or online journal. Your reference may not be included due to date.
