You use the keywords from your research topic to search for journal articles on a topic - usually in a database.
If your topic is more specialized, you may want to search in an online database. Article databases are available through the library for almost every topic, from Anthropology to Zoology. Use the database subject filter to choose a database that matches your topic.
Locating articles: Once you find your citation, you will need to locate the journal to read the article. Some citations will have the full-text of the article available online. For others, click on the FindIt@OSU button to see if OSU subscribes to the electronic or the paper copy of the journal.
FindIt@OSU will open a new window and will display a link to full-text when available. If not, request the article from Interlibrary Loan: http://osulibrary.orst.edu/ill/.
If you have an article citation and want to find that specific article, you can find it several ways.
With Google Scholar you can search broadly (across several disciplines) with one search. You can use Google Scholar to find peer-reviewed articles, but you will also find pre-print copies of articles, conference papers, white papers, patents, legal opinions and more.
