CA 275: Small Group Discussion: Finding Articles

Finding Articles

Use article databases to identify articles on specific topics, as well as to locate full-text electronic articles. Find them on the Articles, Indexes, and Databases page linked from the Library homepage. Remote access is available for most journals.

Multdisciplinary databases such as Academic Search Complete are a good place to start for most topics. Once you have chosen your paper topic, consult a librarian to see which databases are the best suited for your reseach. Here is a webpage detailing the technical process of obtaining a fulltext article.

Newspaper Databases

Magazine Databases

Journal Databases

Some of these databases include material other than journal articles, so to see only the scholarly journal articles, look for the option to limit your results to peer-reviewed journals.
