Scholarly & Peer-Reviewed Articles

When conducting research it is important to distinguish between journal articles and magazine articles.

Journal articles are typically referred to as scholarly, academic, refereed or peer-reviewed while magazine articles are usually considered popular or even sensational. Always know which type is acceptable for your research.

If you're not sure whether a journal is scholarly, look at our checklist.

Where Can I Get This?

The database only gives me a citation, or just an abstract. How do I find the full text?

The Where Can I Get This link lets you know if the full-text of the article is available:

  1. Online through another library database.
  2. In print by doing a search in the Library Catalog.
  3. Via interlibrary loan by making an interlibrary loan request.

Make sure to look for the Where Can I Get This link on the database page!
