Different Ways to Access Journal Articles

Three Common Ways to Access Journal Articles

  1. Search in Primo and use the filters on the left-had side of the screen to just access articles.  Depending on the topic, this will result in many articles from a wide variety of journals.
  2. Go to Databases A-Z to access specific databases containing journals that mainly deal with specific topics, such as ProQuest's Psychology Database which features psychology journals.
  3. In Primo, you can do a search in a specific journal.  For example, if you wanted to research a new infectious disease, you might get relevant results in the Journal of Emerging Infectious Diseases.
