How to Find Scholarly Journal Articles
1. Run a keyword search (example: California politics) limited to Articles.
2. On the left side of the next screen, under Refine my results, then under Resource Type, click the boxes for Peer-Reviewed Journals and Articles. Why choose articles twice? Since the Articles search option also will retrieve other types of publications such as reports, conference proceedings, dissertations, etc., it's necessary to choose articles twice to filter those out.
3. Click the Apply Filters button.
NOTE: Be sure to sign in to My Library Account so you can request articles via our Interlibrary Loan service if full text is not immediately available. See our guide, Using Interlibrary Loan Services.
