  • Full image articles from approximately 180 Academic Press.
  • COVERAGE: From 1/96, with the exceptions noted below.
    EXCEPTIONS: There are two segments of IDEAL that are not available to CSLA users.
    1. Pre-96 full-text is not available to CSLA users. The Library's subscription only allows access to the full-text articles from 1/96 onwards. Many journals included in IDEAL go back several years before this date, but the full-text for these pre-96 articles is NOT available to our users online.
    2. The Library's subscription to IDEAL only allows access to journals published by Academic Press. Full-text articles in journals from other publishers, regardless of the date, are not available to CSLA users. Unfortunately, at this time it is not easy to distinguish who the publisher of a journal is. IDEAL has plans to rectify this problem.

    If full-text access is not allowed, you will get the message, "No contract (license) was found in your profile that allows access to the requested article." To get copies of such articles, first check to make sure that the Library does not have the article you need in print form. If it does not, complete an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request form at the Reference Center, First Floor, Library North, OR complete our online ILL request form.
