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. There are different types of articles: scholarly, popular or trade. 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 an index or a database such as the ones recommended on this guide. These indexes may include citations to book reviews, editorials, dissertations, etc; to limit your search to articles apply the relevant "source type" limiter.
Tip: If you know the name of the journal/magazine/newspaper you are looking for you can click on the Journal Search tab in Omni to search by title.
Some databases provide you with a link to the full-text of the article. To locate others that are not full text, try one of these options:

This will take you to another window which identifies other databases that have full-text of your article. However your article may only be available in print so always check Omni. If Queen's doesn't have access to it, you can request it through InterLibrary Loan.
