Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find full-text articles?
1. One way is to look up a topic in one of the general databases listed on our Articles page. Many, but not all, citations in those databases contain the full text of the articles. If you need articles from scholarly, peer-reviewed journals, most of those databases have options for limiting your searches to those journals.
2. If conducting the best possible search in the journal literature of a particular field (e.g., engineering, genetics, or political science) is more important than easy access to full text, select your subject on our Browse Databases page, and use the recommended databases.
