Scholarly articles, published in journals and other periodical literature, provide focused and often cutting edge research on a topic. The best scholarly articles are peer-reviewed and are published in academic journals. Databases, such as those listed on this page, are often the best sources for finding scholarly articles on your topic. Many of these databases will provide full text of articles which you can download, but some will only provide bibliographic information such as tile, author, and in what journal the article is published. This bibliographic information can be used to find the article in the library catalog or JumboSearch.
