Tips for Finding Articles

How do I narrow my topic?

Limit your searches by dates, subject, geographical location, type of article, or full text availability.

How do I view the articles?

Most, but not all, of the articles you find will be in full text, either html or pdf files. You can print, email, save, or download.

How do I cite the articles in my paper?

One click on the CITE link will create citations for the articles you wish to use in your papers and projects. Don't neglect to use this convenient feature!


Limit and Narrow by:

  • Full Text
  • Peer Review
  • Publication Date
  • Document Type
  • Subject

Types of Documents  (Source Type)

  • Newspapers
  • Magazines
  • Scholarly Journals
  • Trade Journals
  • Reports
  • Wire Feeds

And Much More...


What Kind of Information Do You Need?

Decide what type of articles you need based on the assignment and the Professor's Requirements for Sources:

  • Peer-Reviewed or Scholarly Articles are longer, in depth, and written by experts in the field. You will also find bibliographies, charts, graphs, and usually an abstract or summary of the article.  
  • Magazine and Newspaper Articles - not always signed, shorter than peer-reviewed, written for the general public
