A guide to recommended sources and strategies to find articles for you research assignments

Scholarly Journal Articles

Scholarly articles are published in academic journals. ASU Library subscribes to reputable databases that contain credible and reliable sources. Not every article in each database is full text right there. If no HTMLor PDF file is right there, please use the Get It @ ASU button to find the full text in the ASU Library.

If you are wondering about the scholarliness of a journal, we use Ulrichsweb to verify that the journal is scholarly and if it is also peer-reviewed. You look up the name of the journal. the text of the entry tells you if it is academic and in the columns on the left, the little black & white referee shirt icon tells you if the journal is refereed, also called peer-reviewed.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
