Search an article index or subject-related database such as ARTBibliographies Modern or Art Abstracts for citations or full-text of journal articles or book chapters on your topic.
If the full text is not readily available as a PDF, click on .
Nota bene: If the "Get It" link does not find anything, don't assume that the Library does not hold the item. A search in QCAT for the source title of the journal (or book) might find it.
If you can't find the article or book you need at Queen's either in print or electronically, try RACER, our interlibrary loan service.
Journal articles are important as they contain the most-up-to-date research in a given field and often focus on a particular aspect of a topic.
Articles in scholarly journals are peer-reviewed—that is to say, they have gone through an anonymous formal vetting and editing process—whereas articles in magazines or newspapers are accepted at the discretion of a single editor.
Consult our guide Distinguishing Scholarly Journals from Other Periodicals, to help evaluate and decide which journal articles will be useful for your essay.
Many good articles will be found in art or other interdisciplinary journals. Below are some examples of art or geography/landscape/environmental journals.
