Definitions

  • Journal articles offer detailed looks at very specific topics. 
  • Journal databases (or indexes) allow you to search across hundreds of journals.
  • These databases include journals beyond those held at Illinois. While many articles are available online or available in print in our libraries, those that are not can be requested through InterLibrary Loan (see "Getting full text" tab.)
  • Articles can be scholarly or popular. For how to tell the difference, select the "Is it Scholarly" tab.
  • How do you read an article citation to understand what you're looking for? Select the "Reading citations" tab.
