Why use an index?

Journal articles are not listed in QCAT. Use an index to find journal articles by doing a keyword or subject search. Articles are important in your research since 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.

Tip: Search journal title and not the article title in QCAT!
