Searching Tips

It is most important to first have an idea of what subject one would need to find articles on.  Once a topic is developed, choose relevant keywords that reflect the language used to describe the topic. Then search your chosen database or the library catalog.

Finding Online Journal Articls

Information about online journal articles

  • Individual articles are indexed in databases such as PhilPapers or Ebscohost
  • If an article is unavailable digitally in a database, or through Google searching, you will often be able to find the article in print through the catalog or you will be able to request it through interlibrary loan.
  • Making an interlibrary loan request is a simple process. Fill out the linked form (after logging in with your id number and name) and your article will come to you digitally in as soon as a couple days.
  • Examples to a few journal titles available in full text online are listed below. Click title to access publication. To find more online journal titles in full-text, search Ebscohost with relevant keywords or phrases.
