Where Do I Find Scholarly Articles?

Can I search using Google?

  • Although it is possible to find some scholarly articles on the Internet, most scholarly articles are not freely available to the public.
  • Libraries subscribe to many Databases that contain scholarly articles and allow you to limit your search results to Scholarly (Peer-Reviewed) Journals.
