Journals are similar to magazines in that they are published regularly (eg. monthly or quarterly)
Articles in journals are more in-depth and well-researched than magazine articles. They are written by experts in a particular field of study, and are based on the author's research.
Most of the library's journal articles are accessed electronically through the journal databases. However, the Shepard Library has a sizeable collection in print located in the Serials Department ( 2nd Floor) and accessible through JOURNAL FINDER.
Journal databases are huge, searchable, up-to-date indexes of journal references.
They help you find journal articles that have been published on a topic.
If you have been asked to find scholarly articles for your assignment, you will need to search a database.
