Even when searching for a specific article, using the database Factiva can be a bit tricky.
Here are some tips to help you succeed in finding that specific article you seek.
Date - Specifiy a date range if you can. The default period is “In the last 3 months,” and that may not be what you want. Expert tip: Even if you know the exact date, expand the range by a day or so on each side since. An article’s reported publication date could vary depending upon edition and format.
Publication - If you know the publication in which your article appears, start typing its name in the Source box. Matches should appear.
Article title - If you enter the whole title and the article you seek does not appear, reduce the title. Sometimes there are title variants. In this case, a bit less specificity can sometimes be better.
