Getting Started with Journal Articles

Most of the journal articles owned by Steelman Library will be found online.  Some are found in print.

  • If your professor wants you to use a "peer-reviewed" or "scholarly" article, there is often a box on the search page which you can select to provide only this type of article.  Generally, these two terms are interchangeable.
  • If you only want to receive search results you can link to online, choose "full-text" as a search option.

Recommended Journals

Your professor recommends the following journals. They contain articles with high-quality content and are at an easier reading level than many disciplinary journals.
