In the search results, I can see that the full text for my article would be available in 3 databases: CINAHL, Ebsco Open Access Journals, and Free Access Journals from Highwire. All of those databases have the year 2012 for my journal.

I will choose CINAHL to find my article. Then I can either search within the journal for part of the article title or an author's name or I can browse by year and volume/issue numbers.
