Search inside a journal using Google

Sometimes, a journal does not have a search function for its back issues, such as the Journal of Criminal Justice and Popular Culture. The link to its page for browsing back issues for this journal is this:

https://www.albany.edu/scj/jcjpc/jcjpc_back_issues.html

In Google, this is the formula to search inside a web site:

site:www.website.com search term

Note that with our example, if I select only https://www.albany.edu, I'd be searching the entire site, including way more pages than just the journal pages. The best parts of the address to use for our purposes are: https://www.albany.edu/scj/jcjpc. So a sample Google site search for the journal back issues might look like this:

site:https://www.albany.edu/scj/jcjpc/ sentencing
