The Literature Review

How do I know if my article is scholarly?

Article Search Tips

Some things to remember when searching for a journal article:

  1. Be sure to mark the "Peer-Reviewed" box in EBSCO if you are looking for scholarly articles.
  2. Use the database you are searching to find "Subjects" or "Descriptors" for your topic keywords.  For more information on this check out the Research Strategies Workshops.
  3. Some articles will be available in PDF or HTML format and can be downloaded or emailed to yourself.
  4. If full text insn't available, be sure to click on the "Get This" button to see if the article is in full text from another source.
  5. Anything not available in full text can be requested via Interlibrary Loan.
  6. Interlibrary Loans can take from 2 days to 2 weeks to arrive, or for you to receive notification that the article request cannot be filled.
