Scholarly articles can be found by searching the library catalog.  Perform a search in the "Books & More" tab and on the results page, click on "Peer-reviewed Journals" in the menu on the left to refine your results.

Try searching our Popular Databases, Academic Search Complete, JSTOR, and ProQuest, which also offer various features including citing, bookmarking, and emailing. All results in JSTOR are from scholarly journals.

For subject-specific research, try browsing databases by subject. Most databases let you filter your results to academic or scholarly journals.

If you need additional help selecting a database, please email your topic to us at for recommendations.
