Organizational Development: Find Journal Articles

Google Scholar

Google Scholar Search

Google Scholar is not the first place to look for articles because it does not necessarily contain scholarly articles.  Once you have found a citation from a peer-reviewed journal in the databases, Google Scholar can be helpful if you need to find the full-text.

Finding Articles from a Citation

To find a full-text article in a journal when you have a citation (or abstract) OR need to find a particular journal

-Go to the library's homepage.

-Click on the "Databases & Journals" tab

-Select Journals List.

-Type all or part of the journal title to find the specific title.

-When you find a result you want, click "Check Other UIW Resources." Follow the link to full-text and navigate to the issue you are seeking.

-If you do not find a title you are searching for, contact the Reference Desk for help, check Google Scholar, or submit an ILL request.


Use a database to locate articles on your topic.  Many of our databases have HTML and/or PDF links to the full text of the articles cited.  If you don't find text links for the articles you need, see the Does the Library Have This? tab for tips and information on locating the text
