Finding Articles


For your assignments and research you will need to find peer-reviewed, scholarly articles. Your best starting point is HoyaSearch , your 'one stop shop' for searching lots of online databases all at once. Simply select the HoyaSearch tab on the library website home page search box,  enter your keywords and press "Search".


In the results list, filter to "Peer-Reviewed Journals" under the Availability section and "Articles" under the Content Type section to your left.


Sometimes HoyaSearch results will be too overwhelming: there might be too many articles that you cannot possibly go through or the relevency might be low. You can then try to search in a subject-specific database to focus your search strategy to a narrower 'pool of information'.
