Access is provided to ASA (American Statistical Association) and IMS (Institute of Mathematical Statistics) members. Use MathSciNet, Google Scholar and/or other databases to find these resources. 

Brock's SuperSearch database is awesome, it includes all the content found in MathSciNet, Web of Science, etc. it is a first search alternative when wanting to find research.

There are several alternate services that translate journal name abbreviations to full names including All That JAS, Web of Science Journal Title Abbreviations, and Brock Library's A_Z List of Journals (just enter abbreviation - full name will come out if found).
