Scholarly Articles & Academic Research: Finding Journal Articles
Need to find journal articles or scholarly or academic research papers? Ordinary search engines are not very useful for finding academic research studies, scholarly journal articles, or other sources. Academic search engines like www.googlescholar.com are a far better alternative, and they abound online. Use the tools below to find journal articles, which are available in formats ranging from citations or brief abstracts to full text delivered electronically or in hard copy. Some articles are provided free. Often, a fee is required or access is restricted in some way. To find journals using regular search engines or web directories, try adding the word journal or the phrase "electronic journal" to your search term. In directories, look under your respective discipline. Yahoo, for example, lists eleven journals under Science/Biology/Cell Biology and twelve under Arts/Humanities/Literature/Poetry. Academic articles and scholarly research papers may also be available through the Internet's many library gateways, listed at right below. You may also want to try our invisible web resources, useful for searching databases.
