Journal Articles: Introduction


Academic journal articles are shorter than books and they normally focus on very specific topics. Journals also tend to be where the latest research is published. You can use the databases below to find academic journal articles, and to identify experts on a particular topic.

Some of the databases are full-text, but others only include citations, so you'll need to check those in Library Search to find out if we have access to the relevant journal.
