Finding Articles

Enter a few important subject-related keywords in the search box and hit the "Search" button.

You can narrow your results even further on your search results screen. If you're only interested in articles from Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed journals, look for the "Limit To" panel and click the box that says "Scholarly Sources." Your results list will be updated to weed out non-scholarly sources.

Database Search Tips

  • Select Scholarly Sources to limit you search to only articles published in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals.
  • Select Full-Text to see only articles you can read immediately.
  • If the full text of an article isn't available, you can request it for free through InterLibrary Loan (ILLIAD). Articles usually take 24-48 hours to arrive, and are sent to you by email.
  • When you have found an article that is close to what you are looking for, look at the subject headings. Try searching these terms to find relevant articles.
  • Look at the references/citations at the end of an article to find more articles on your topic.
