Journal articles offer the most up-to-date information on topics, so they are an important part of research. They tend to be more narrowly focused than information found in books or specialized reference works, so it's best to search for them after you're familiar with your topic, know what you're searching for, and have found specific search terms.
Finding Journal Articles
Most journal articles are found by searching subject-specific databases. To find out which database is best for your area of research, visit the Articles (Databases) page and choose the subject area that is closest to your topic.
How to Search Article Databases
