Let's say that this is the URL for your article that you saved:

http://web.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail?vid=3&hid=106&sid=5e0ad067-e140-4690-87cb-fc973db794bd%40sessionmgr110&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#db=a9h&AN=25738020

It's long and ugly but at the end you'll notice a string of numbers -- AN=25738020 -- this is the accession number for the article.  The accession number is the unique identifier for the article in the database.

Now if you go into Academic Search Complete you can search on the accession number and go straight to the article. 

  1. Go to Academic Search Complete
  2. Type the number into the search box
  3. From the drop-down window to the right of the search box choose "AN Accession Number"
  4. Click on "Search"

You should be taken to the article.
