Finding Articles

Articles that come from scholarly journals are important because they are the main vehicle by which scholars communicate their ideas to one another, question one another, build upon existing ideas, and present new research findings. When you access this conversation by researching within scholarly journals, you’re looking at very high quality, trustworthy information that was created by scholars for scholars.

And when you use these sources to provide context for your ideas, or when you apply the ideas of others in new and interesting ways, you become a part of that conversation, too—which is pretty exciting!

This section of the tutorial will lead you through the process of searching for, finding and locating articles.
