Use this research guide to learn what scholarly articles are, how to search for them, and where to find full text articles.
First, make sure you read the Duke University Libraries' guide to understanding Popular Magazines vs. Scholarly Journals (in the box below).
Then, use the ProQuest and Academic Search Complete tabs to find the most useful databases for your research. Make sure you watch the videos, which show you specifically how to search for full-text scholarly journals, including reviews.
Next, click on the Find Full Text Articles tab to see how you can track down copies of articles when you only have the citation.
Don't forget to explore the Ebooks and Books tabs as well. The ebrary database is an entire virtual library online. And we have many copies of books relating to your assignment in the library as well.
If you have ANY questions at all about how to do this, email your Research Librarians, Jennifer and Tish. Or, simply drop by the front desk in the library, and our staff can help you. Remember that you can get extra credit for making an appointment with a research consultant for help.
