Guide to Online Sources: Academic articles

Even in the best of times so much of our lives is online, this includes research! This LibGuide will lead you to great places to find all types of sources online.

Academic articles

Academic articles are published in journals, which are periodicals that contain articles in the same field of study. These articles are written by experts in their field and are reviewed by scholars in the same field through a process referred to as peer-review. This page will guide you through some places where you can search for academic articles.

Databases: General

Databases are paid subscriptions. To access these resources you will have to use a link from a LibGuide, Canvas page or provided by your teacher or one of the librarians. You will be asked to login through our proxy server to use databases.

Open Web Sources

Sources can be found on the open web. These are typically free and do not require you to login. You need to be careful about the reliability of sources on the open web. If we recommend a site to you then we have determined it to be reliable. If you find it on your own, please check with your teacher or librarian to verify that it is reliable.
