Just above the large search box on the library's welcome page, there is a tab labeled Publication Finder

Click on that tab.

Then, click on the link labeled Browse by Subject

You will see a list of categories to choose from.  For this example, Nutrition & Dietetics was chosen.
Now you should see a list of journals that are about the topic you selected.  To limit the journals to peer reviewed/scholarly, look down along the left hand side for Peer Reviewed Journals and click on that.
The screen will refresh and now only peer reviewed journals should be displayed.  
You can further narrow the results by clicking on a subject.  A list of subjects can be found on the left hand side of the screen.
Below the title of the journal is a search box.  You can search the entire contents of the journal using that search box.  Simply type in the words or phrases you are looking for and hit enter.
Below the search box is a list o f databases that the journal is located in.   Here is where you can find what 
years we have access to for that particular journal.  For this journal, the database Medline Complete has full text access from 1928 to the present.   For the databases EBSCO Open Access Journals and Free Access Journals (HighWire) there is a full text access delay of one year.  That means that those databases do not have access to the latest 12 months for that journal.  In this instance, it may be best to click on Medline Complete because it does have access to the entire journal.
