Do you have questions about library sources, finding information, framing research questions, using citation managers? Send me an email and we'll find a time to meet via Zoom or other online tools.

Finding the full text of an article

 Look for the 360 link to full text button to open the full article.

Options for getting to the PDF will open in a new window. Sometimes the link will take you to the journal, not the individual article. Use the citation information for the article to get to the right year, volume and issue of the journal.

If the library doesn't have it, request the article for free from Interlibrary Loan: On average, articles arrive digitally in 13 hours.

Recitation Topics - Suggested Search Tools

This guide is designed to help you find scholarly articles on your recitation topic.

Start by using one of the broad search tools listed on below: 1Search, Google Scholar, or Web of Science.

Learn more about 1Search and Web of Science on the next two tabs.

Next try one of the more subject-specific search tools suggested below your recitation topic.

Start Broadly - 1Search

Find books, online scholarly articles or newspaper articles that OSU subscribes to.  If you need to find specific items, such as books by a particular author, use the advanced search option for more precise searching. Access 1Search from the library's home page.

1Search search bar showing two links: Databases A through Z and eJournals A through Z


Google Scholar

Google Scholar

You do allow embedded content.

A simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature.

Find out how to set your preferences in Google Scholar, so you can use OSU Libraries subscriptions to get free access to content that is not free on the web:

How to use Google Scholar (without Paying for the Articles)

Web of Science

Web of Science is one of the most popular databases for scientific researchers. Find scholarly articles from a wide range of science fields.

Explore the connections between articles with quick links to citation information.

Genomic Editing for Food and Beverage Production

Tip: Use the magazine or other science news sites listed below to search for biotechnology keyword ideas first (e.g., CRISPR) and then combine those keywords with specific crops, foods, ingredients, or beverages you have read about to search for research articles in PubMed (or Google Scholar, 1Search, or Web of Science).

What is "Natural" Wine?

Tips: This list includes databases with a scientific or economic focus (the first two options) and databases with a historical focus (the last two options). Academic Search Premier overlaps both areas and includes information that is both scientific and historical. In any of the databases, start with a few broad keywords, but then add in more keywords or use the narrowing options on the sides of the search results pages to clarify your results. You will likely need to use more than one database to find sources.

Communicating Risk

Tips: This list includes databases with a scientific focus (the first two options), an interdisciplinary focus that includes results from newspapers and government sources (the third option), and a business database (the last option). Start with a broad search like "food safety communication" in these databases to see what some of the techniques and audiences are for this topic.
