Library Research: Finding Journal Articles


So, you have spotted the terms ‘journal’, ‘journal articles’ and ‘peer reviewed’ in your subject outline. But what are they and how do you locate them? This introductory workshop will explain: • the concept of peer-review and why you would use articles from a peer-reviewed journal • how to analyse your assessment question to develop a basic search strategy • how to find scholarly journal articles in Primo Search • how to check a journal article’s peer-review status. Duration: 1 hour. A tip from your librarians! Finding Online Journal Articles is the first in our trilogy of workshops about using the Library to find scholarly resources.
