Where to Search
Use Research Databases to find articles on your topic.
There are many Multi-Subject Databases.
Many of the articles contain full-text, meaning that the actual article is available in the database.
Databases contain proprietary content from a variety of scholarly journals, conference proceedings, books, dissertations, and more.
Some databases contain content from only one publisher, such as Elsevier or Wiley, while others have content, or index articles, from a variety of publishers.
Types of Periodicals
What's a periodical?
A periodical is a magazine, journal, newspaper, or similar item that comes out periodically, i.e. once a week, month, etc.
It's good to be able to distinguish between scholarly and non-scholarly periodicals, especially for more advanced research. See the Scholarly Journals guide for more info.
