Begin your search for scholarly journal articles by using one of the Library's 250 Research Databases. To find the best database for your topic, use the recommended resources in a Subject Guide.
Select a subject to see which databases are recommended:
If you haven't identified a topic, try searching one of our multidisciplinary databases. This will help you to get a sense of what research has been done and establish a direction for your own work.
For much more information about finding scholarly journal articles, please see our Finding Articles guide.
If you have trouble finding articles for your paper, don't hesitate to get in touch with a librarian. We're here to help you find what you need!
You may find article citations in our Research Databases (or in books or other articles) that do not link to the full text of an article. To find the full text of any article, begin with our Journals A-Z search. Journals A-Z is a list of the over 70,000 journals, magazines and newspapers for which we have full-text access. To find full text, search for the title of the journal in your citation (as opposed to the article's title).
If the Library does not have access to the full text of an article, place a request using ILLiad. In most cases, the article will be emailed to you within 1 to 3 days. Articles are more likely to come quickly if you enter as much information about the citation as possible.
