Finding Journal Articles at York Libraries

To identify journal articles on a specific topic, use a periodical database (also known as a "periodical index" or an "article database"). There are many different periodical databases available through York University Libraries. Some are subject-specific (e.g. Sociological Abstracts, PsycINFO), while others are multi-disciplinary (e.g. Expanded Academic ASAP, CBCA Complete).

For business articles, see Guide to Finding Business Articles.

STEPS:

  1. Select an appropriate database
  2. Search the database
  3. Find the articles
  4. Scholarly vs. popular articles
  5. How to identify a peer-reviewed journal
