Journals and magazines either come from the EBSCOhostProQuest, or Gale databases.  Each of them has a different interface, so once you've selected a journal or a magazine from the subject guides, it can be a little confusing what to do next.

The following screenshots will hopefully point you in the right direction.

Generally speaking, you need to look for a few different things on the publication pages:
1) The journal/magazine's title,
2) The full-text coverage information (so that you know exactly how far back the journal/magazine goes);
3) Where to go to search within the publication (say if you wanted to search for articles with the word "broccoli" in them, limited to just that one journal); and
4) How to select individual issues so you can browse a single issue of the journal (for example, if you wanted to look at the most recent issue).

The screenshots below show you where to go to access those four things in EBSCOhost, ProQuest, and in Gale.
