Most scholarly journal articles (also known as peer-reviewed journal articles) are available electronically through Rod Library databases. See database suggestions below. You can search by keyword and limit to peer-reviewed sources.
What are scholarly articles?
- Most scholarly journal articles report on the results of research studies or scholarly inquiry, and are written by researchers. See this tipsheet for a chart of differences between journals and magazines.
How do I read/understand these articles?
- See this guide for tips.
Search: General databases
- OneSearch (main search box in center of Rod Library website): following a keyword search, use the right side-bar to limit to Peer-reviewed Journals under the Availability options as shown below.
- Google Scholar (UNI version, which links to Rod Library subscriptions): most, but not all, included sources are peer-reviewed journal articles
Search: Subject-specific databases
- Browse all Rod Library databases here. Use pull-down options at top of page to see lists by Subject.
If there is an article you need that Rod Library does not own, you may request it through Interlibrary Loan.
