In peer-reviewed journals, the articles are reviewed by other experts in the same field of study before they are published. The published collections of journal articles are stored together in subject databases.
Finding journal articles
1. To locate journal articles you need to search in a subject database for the journal literature in your field (choose from lists to the right.)
2. Once in the database, enter the key concepts that you are looking for, and combine terms you would like to find in the same article.
The USask Library subscribes to hundreds of different databases, click here for a complete alphabetical list. If we don't have access to an article that you find, you can still request it for free through our InterLibrary Loan service at no cost to you!
Most databases have their own search help page and user guides.
For assistance with searching, please ask reference desk staff. You can also email the library.
