On the library's home page, the SEARCH box provides one search engine for journal articles, books, videos and more. Once you enter a key word search into the box and click the search button, you will be able to limit your search to Academic Journals. You will also see additional opportunities to narrow your search, such as publication year.
Or, on the library's home page, click on Databases. From there, you can find what's available for searching by title or by subject area. Each database description will tell you whether or not journal articles are covered in the database. Many journal article databases offer the option of limiting to Peer reviewed or Scholarly.
Some of the databases most frequently used by graduate students are:
Communication Sciences and Disorders: Communication and Mass Media Complete, Medline, PsycINFO
Creative Arts Therapy (Art Therapy, Music Therapy): PsycINFO
Education: Education Abstracts, Education Journals (Proquest), ERIC, Professional Development Collection
Management: ABI/Inform Complete, Business Source Elite
Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy: Medline, CINAHL (CINAHL is for nursing and allied health professions literature)
Social Work: PsycINFO, Social Science Abstracts, Social Work Abstracts
Two multidiscplinary options include: Academic Search Elite and Proquest Research Library
Finally, if you know the name of a journal publication, click on the link for Journals or Articles (to search for a specific article).
