Tips for Finding Articles

 Here are some popular options to look for when searching magazine/journal databases:

  • When it comes to finding articles in education, you may want to start with ERIC, EBSCO's ERIC and Education Full-Text, or EBSCO's OmniFile. InfoTrac may be able to help, also.
  • Most databases have options (filters) to use when selecting information.
  • Often there is a "full-text" box to check in order to make the database retrieve articles that are the entire article (not just the citation). Please remember that most databases do not contain ALL full-text articles.
  • Many scholarly databases will offer an option in order to select "peer-reviewed" journal articles.
  • Databases have a tendency to list the most recent articles at the top. This is called reverse chronological order. If this does not happen, look for an option in order to choose articles according to publication date.

What is a Database?

Databases are accessed through the Internet, but they are not counted as Internet resources.  Databases contain articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers.  Users can search for articles on their topics.
