Enter the article title in the Free Text Search box to find the full text.
Article titles sometimes vary between wsj.com and the newspaper, so you may need to do broader keyword searches when trying to find an article cited on the web site. Here's an example from the University of Chicago’s library Factiva search tips:
Web version: Home runs are no longer paying the bills (Link is behind WSJ paywall)
Factiva version: Homers No Longer Pay the Bills
This isn’t super intuitive. Let me know if you have questions! See the screenshot below, too.
To see all articles published on a given day:
Select “Search” in the top bar to get to a blank Free Text Search box.
Make sure the Query Genius Mode is enabled in the top right hand side of the page.
Enter wc>1 in the search box. This tells Factiva to give you all articles with word counts greater than one word.
Under the search box, select Date - your options include in the last day/week/month/etc. You can also enter a specific date range.
Under Date, select Source. This will give you a search box and let you search for Wall Street Journal. I usually select “The Wall Street Journal - All sources”, but you can also specify just the online version or just the newspaper.
Please be sure to use this link (also available from the CLIO record ). It will prompt you for your UNI in order to grant you access to our subscription. ProQuest uploads WSJ content only once a day and does not have the current day’s news.
However, it’s much easier to browse content if you are interested in seeing a list of articles published on a given day, provided that day is yesterday or earlier.
