Don't know if KPU has a particular journal or magazine? Use the Journal by Title search to find out if the Library subscribes.

Once you've searched the Library's databases, check Google Scholar for more articles and reports. Use the "Where Can I Get This?" link to take you to articles available through KPU's subscriptions.
