Finding journal articles is essential when researching the literature for engineering topics. The following resources find journal articles, and in some cases, newspaper articles, book chapters, conference papers, and dissertation, too. Use these "one search" options when trying to shift through a lot of material - it's much more efficient than browsing journals or searching through each publisher's website, one-at-a-time.
Indexing and Abstracting databases allow you to cover thousands of journal articles with just one search. Some of these databases will also cover newspaper articles, conference papers, book chapters and/or technical reports. So don't waste time guessing what journals will have articles on your topic or searching just one journal at a time.
If you are an undergraduate but not majoring in engineering, use:

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.
