What is Peer Review?

Peer review is an editing process in which a scholar's work is reviewed by experts in a field before being accepted for publication.   

More credence is given to journal articles that have gone through a peer review process because they have been reviewed by experts in the field for accuracy of content (rather than just an editor, as is the case of a newspaper or magazine) before being accepted for publication. 

NOTE:
   ALL peer reviewed journals are scholarly journals.
   Not all scholarly journals are peer reviewed.

 

 

JOURNAL FINDER Checks Subscriptions

Have a citation? Not sure where to find the journal?

Use JOURNAL FINDER  for a list of  journals by that title to which the library carries a subscription.  Includes links directly to online journal when available.

Different databases may carry a journal either as full text or index only.  Check listing for the journal  in each database listed it to verify if it is provided as full text or citation only. 

Possible locations given in JOURNAL FINDER for full text articles include: 

  • List of all databases which index journal
  • Print (on shelf in the library)
  • Microfilm/fiche (1st floor, library)

NOTE:  This is NOT an article finder

 

The JOURNAL FINDER tool only verifies access to specific journal titles and re-directs you to that journal.  Whether an index (database) carries the full text of articles depends on the contract between database and publisher and is not controlled by the library.

Multiple listings for a journal indicate that a specific journal is indexed by several different database companies.  It is possible various companies may offer access to different issues (dates of publication), with some offering more older issues, some less.

Best databases to begin looking for journal and news articles (business).

See drop-down sub-tab --  A-Z List of Databases -- for comprehensive list databases for finding journal and news articles related to business.

(NOTE:  Databases are online indexes to help you find articles by topic, by author or by journal name) 


(Stock exchange links provided to help locate the ticker symbol for a specific company.  Ticker symbols can sometimes be used as a search term when using a database to locate articles.   Stock exchange links do NOT provide journal articles.)


  • New York Stock Exchange
    Look up company name and find ticker symbol for any company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. NOTE: Many databases allow you to search for articles about a specific corporation by using the stock market ticker symbol for that company. Hence, if you wish to locate articles on Coca Cola Company, it may be easier to enter KO than to use the company name. This eliminates articles on other companies with similar name (such as Coca Cola Bottling Company).
  • London Stock Exchange
    Find ticker symbol for companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. NOTE: Many databases allow you to search for articles about a specific corporation by using the stock market ticker symbol for that company. Hence, if you wish to locate articles on Coca Cola Company, it may be easier to enter KO than to use the company name. This eliminates articles on other companies with similar name (such as Coca Cola Bottling Company).

What is a Journal Article?

 Not sure what a "journal" is?  

  •     A journal is simliar to a magazine. 
  •     A journal, unlike a magazine, is dedicated to academic topics. 
  •        Examples
    • Journal of American History
    • New England Journal of Medicin
  •     A journal issue consists of articles written by experts within the discipline.
  •     A journal is intended to be read by someone researching in that discipline.
  •     A journal article contains language (words/jargon) specific to that discipline.
  •     A journal article refers the reader to research sources and statistics used to write the article.
  •     A journal article contains a bibliography (references cited) page at the end.
  •     A journal consists of many issues (sometimes weekly, monthly or quarterly).
  •     A journal issue contains several articles which are NOT necessarily on the same topic.
  •     A journal lists each year since it was first published as a volume.  (One volume equals 1 year)
