Finding Full-Text Articles

When you are searching in the Library's databases look first for a link to a PDF filePDF file.

If no PDF link is available look for the Get it button.
This button allows you to:

  1. See if the article is available online in ANY of the Library's databases, not just the one you are using.
  2. Search the Library's Catalog to see if the article is available in the library (if it is not online).
  3. Automatically do an interlibrary loan request if the article is not available online or in the library.

Peer Review

What is Peer Review?

It is the quality control system for scholarship.  It means that articles in a peer-reviewed journal must be scrutinized by experts before they are published.  SYNONYMS = 'academic', 'juried', 'refereed', 'scholarly'.

How can you tell when something is peer-reviewed?

1) When you are looking at a print copy, of an entire issue of a journal, the editorial board of scholars with academic credentials and institutional affiliations will be listed somewhere.  These are the 'peers' that review each published article.

2) Use a check box limit in your database search (when available).

3) Consult Ulrich's Periodicals Directory. (Search on the source title NOT the article title.)  An icon of a referee's jersey will indicate that the journal is peer-reviewed.
