Journal & Newspaper Article Databases

Journal Article Databases

Newspaper Databases

Journal articles are very specific. 

  • Finding articles is easier after you have read up on your topic.


Use more than one article database. 

  • No database searches everything.
  • For thorough research, use more than one database and try different search terms.
