What is a scholarly journal article?

This is a great tutorial to help students understand what scholarly articles are, how they are written, and why they are important.

Finding Full-Text

Many databases offer both full-text (yay!) and citations (grr!). When the full-text is not available, try this:

1. In the database, click the journal linker button or "search journal title" to check for it in other library databases

2. Limit the search to "full-text" and find another article

3. Search other libraries for the periodical:

4. Get the article from another library:

  • Visit a library in person
  • Ask a librarian about Interlibrary Loan service
