How to find journal articles
You may think you can get all the information you need from books and websites, but it's a good idea to include journal articles in your research too. Academic journals are an excellent source of scholarly information on your topic. Here are a few tips for finding journal articles:-
Use the Articles & more search in iFind, especially if you know the name of the article you want
You'll find more relevant results if you search specialist databases - have a look at the Key Resources Page
Use the abstract (a summary of the article) to help you decide if an article is relevant for you
Once you've found an article you need, print it out or save it to your device so you can read it whenever you like and make notes
