ESL Gateway: Articles & Databases

How to find academic articles in databases

When your assignment requires academic articles or sources, you'll want to know how to limit your search in a database so you can find them. These databases include thousands of publications ranging from academic journals to newspapers. One search for "bees" could retrieve over 30,000 articles. To find the articles from academic journals, also called scholarly or peer-reviewed journals, limit your searches by checking the boxes next to "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journal" and "Full Text."
