One way to limit to Communication Journals from a Database is to put "Communication" in the Search Box and select "Publication Name" from the drop-down (Select a field) area (and then use an additional search box for your topic). This means that the journal will have "Communication" in its title and will often be a Communication Studies Journal. You will still have to check these results and deselect any non-Communication specific titles. This example is from an EBSCO Database, such as Communication Source, and it may be applicable to other databases. For many classes, you will also want to choose the limiter: Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed Journals ONLY.
"Find It" means that the Full Text of an article is not available in the database that is currently being searched, but it may be available 1) in other databases or 2) it may be ordered through Interlibrary Loan.
