An article is a piece of writing found within a serial, or periodical. Most of us are most familiar with these as magazines, but they also encompass journals and newspapers. For academic research, articles are used for up-to-date evidence and information, whereas a book will be useful for a larger overview of a topic.
What is a SCHOLARLY article?
Scholarly journals are also referred to as "academic" journals, "peer-reviewed", or "referred" journals. The term "scholarly" indicates that the author has submitted their article to other scholars in their field for review and comment. The article reviewers must agree that the article represents information based on properly conducted original research before it can be published. This is the peer review process (briefly!).
Provides a quick, easy and comprehensive search of thousands of journal articles. Use the search filters to select the type of material you need: newspaper or magazine article, scholarly journal article, and yes... even ebooks (that's what the + indicates).
Good to know: Articles+ is available both within Quicksearch AND as a standalone entity. This link will send you to the version within Quicksearch, which will not give you as much information about the article (such as subjects or abstracts). This version is good if you aren't sure what you need yet! If you know you need an article go to the standalone Articles+ (linked above).
Make your article search even more specific by using a database. Search for the exact database you need by title (i.e.: "Academic Search Premier"), or locate a relevant database using a keyword or subject search (i.e.: "philosophy" or "art history").
If you're just getting started with your research, start general by using either a broad database or by using a database that can provide background information or newspaper content. Three examples of such resources are listed below. Try them!
