Stanford does not have access to all of the journals cited in Africa-Wide NIPAD. To locate journals, try these first -

1. Socrates

2. E-Journals

3. Bioline International. Has some full text journals on-line, free access.

4. SAePublications - if the journal is from South Africa

If none of the above have the journal, you may be able to borrow the article on Interlibrary Loan. You can find an on-line interlibrary loan form at

To find other libraries which might have the journal, look in World Catalog.


Quality Control

Africa-Wide NIPAD citations are not always the best.

For example, it has this citation -

Title: Consequences of the AIDS epidemic for children. Author: URASSA, M [MARC] Source: 1997, p 337-349

You probably won't find the above looking in an online catalog. The correct citation can be found by putting the title in Google.

Urassa, M et al. 1997. Consequences of the AIDS Epidemic for Children. In Ng'weshemi et al (eds). 1997 HIV Prevention and AIDS Care in Africa. A District Level Approach. Royal Tropical Institute. The Netherlands.

It's a chapter in a book. Stanford does not have the book. But if you look in World Catalog, U. C. Berkeley has it.
