How do I Find Journal Articles?

There are several different approaches to finding journal articles, depending on your starting point.

1. If you are looking for a known item:

  • Try Articles Plus. For instance, search for the title of the journal and click the "Find It" button to get access.
  • Search the Library Catalog for the journal title and use the "Find It" button

2. If you are exploring a topic, use an article index such as Philosopher's Index or PhilPapers. This approach is more comprehensive than going to JSTOR which does not include the last five years of journal content. Also, JSTOR only includes a fraction of the journal titles indexed in Philosopher's Index or other subject-specific indexes.

3. If you are looking for a particular journal online, search the Library's e-journal index.

Indexes for Finding Articles in Philosophy

When searching databases, the Find It button, when present, can be used to locate an item in the UofC online catalog, to gain access to the full-text of an article, or to send interlibrary loan orders to the ILL Office for items that the Library does not own.
