Hello, I'm a new student in the graduate Communication program. I'm doing research and trying to figure out a way to save articles/citations in one folder that's easily accessible so that I can go back to it quickly when I need to look at the articles that I might use. The problem is that I'm searching in various databases and when I go to save citations, they all ask me to sign in. Will I have to create a sign in for each database and then save the citations for each database separately? Thanks for any help!

I actually have another question :/ I'm doing a paper for a different class and I used a conference paper. I found what it should look like but I don't have all the information so I'm not sure what to do to cite it in APA! Here's what I have: Kim, J., & Jin, B. (2005). In a different voice (and text): Gender differences in communication motives and uses of mobile phone. Conference Papers -- International Communication Association, 1-20. Here's what it should be like: Brown, S., & Caste, V. (2004, May). Integrated obstacle detection framework. Paper presented at the IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium, Detroit, M I think the main problem is that I don't have where the paper was presented and I'm not really sure what to do about that? If you don't know please don't worry about it!

I am in Intro to Communications Research and working on my first assignment and I was looking for articles on the Communication and mass media EBSCO host database and found many articles that I would be interested in using.  I selected "Full Text" as a requirement, yet when I click on the articles Full Text, in the PDF format nothing shows up. It has a list of things on the left side but the center of the screen is blank gray and no text or document comes up. It almost seems as though the page hasn't loaded completely, but it has and still nothing shows up.  I was wondering if you could help me access these articles.

How are you? I am a Communications graduate student studying for my comprehensive exams. I stumbled across the “International Encyclopedia of Communication” while researching more information on a theory that I am studying. Here is the page: http://www.communicationencyclopedia.com/public/tocnode?query=albert+bandura+social+cognitive+theory&widen=1&result_number=1&from=search&fuzzy=0&type=std&id=g9781405131995_yr2010_chunk_g978140513199524_ss57-1&slop=1#citation This encyclopedia has information that I think will be invaluable in studying for my comprehensive exams. It puts very dense communication theories into layman’s terms. The problem is, we are only allowed to access a short part of the abstract and need a subscription to access the full article. Does Villanova have a subscription for this? I am extremely eager to access these articles. Thank you so much, I appreciate your help!
