How do I Find Journal Articles?

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

1. If you know the title of the article:

  • 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 

2. If you are exploring a topic, use an article index such as ATLA religion Database. 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 ATLA or other subject-specific indexes. JSTOR is a great resource for searching for articles across disciplines.

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