Journal articles are important sources for your research as they contain the most-up-to-date research in a given field and often focus on a particular aspect of a topic. If you are looking for scholarly or peer reviewed articles, you can typically restrict your search results to only peer reviewed journal articles by applying a search limit in the database.
To locate articles on your topic, use Omni or an index or a database such as the ones recommended on this guide.
Tip: If you know the name of the journal you are looking for you can click on the Journal Search tab in Omni to search by title.
Multidisciplinary databases index a great number of publications and allow you to search across the disciplines.
They are a good resource to use when you begin your research.
