Is there an easier way to get the current issue of a magazine journal from a database such as Lexis Nexis?

I would like to read some magazines such as the Economist on my computer. I am a college student and have access to them through journal databases such as Lexis Nexis and Expanded Academic ASAP so I don't want to buy a subscription. But I find the purchased magazine in its electronic form much more convenient to read.
The problem with the journal database is that it is designed for searching and scholarly work, so the simple task of downloading this month's magazine to flip through requires navigating in and out of the database for each article and clicking the "full text" link. I'd like to spend less time on the website and more time reading. Is there a way to automate this process? (through greasemonkey or imacros for example).
