Academic Journal Articles
Scholarly journal articles are written by academic experts who have done serious research in their field. Lipscomb Library has a collection of print journals, but most of our academic articles are now find-able through our online databases. There are two ways to find journal articles: Search for articles
by topic, or search for journals
in a specific field. Each option is broken down below.
Academic Journal Databases
Academic Search Complete
A comprehensive database that covers research across all academic fields
A comprehensive database covering research across fields, with an emphasis on humanities and social sciences
A freely accessible web search engine that indexes scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines
Research Guides by Subject
Recommended resources for each academic subject
Find Journals by Title or Academic Field
If you're looking for a particular journal (such as The Journal of Academic Publishing), you can use the search box on the homepage to search for the title. You can also use the journal search feature to see which journals you can access in each academic area. For instance, if you're looking for journals that publish content on American history, try a keyword search for "American history."
Find Articles by Keyword
This is probably your best bet if you want to find academic articles on a particular topic. You can use a research database to search for academic literature by keyword. Lipscomb Library subscribes to many databases; Academic Search Complete is a good general database to start with. Or look at our subject guides to research to find recommended databases by subject area. For more on using the databases to find scholarly journal articles, see our guide on Using the Databases, or ask a librarian for help
