How do I interpret a reference and get the article?



Say you have this reference and need to find it:

Brown, A.S.; Milton, M.J.T.; Cowper, C.J. J. Chromatogr. A. 2004, 1040, 215-225.

What does it mean? First separate the reference into its component parts:

Brown, A.S.; Milton, M.J.T.; Cowper, C.J. | J. Chromatogr. A. | 2004, | 1040, | 215-225.

  1. Author(s) in published order
  2. Journal title (abbreviation)
  3. Year
  4. Volume number
  5. Pages (or starting page)

Note that in chemistry bibliographies the article title is usually not given.
