Scholar's Research Toolbox (FACULTY)

Finding Journal Articles

If you are looking for research material published in journals, start by searching the Academic Search Complete aggregator which contains fulltext articles from core journals across many fields.

Start your search for articles using keywords. Remember to use synonyms and to refine your initial results using both additional terms and/or the facets (sub-clusters of results by subject terms, date, material type, and so on) on the left side of the results page.  You may also find the Advanced Search options helpful in limiting searches by type of information, type of results, specific populations, and other variables.

HINT: Using subject facets removes materials that are irrelevant because of terminology confusion—for example, it would allow a researcher to easily remove plasma-in-physics articles from plasma-in-blood search results

You may also want to expand your search using additional journal-index databases from our subject guides.


The interdisciplinary Scopus journal index provides enhanced discovery techniques such as citation tracking.
