Tips on Selecting a Scholarly Article
Here are some characteristics of a scholarly article:
- Articles written by professors or researchers
- Designed for students, professors, & researchers
- Articles reviewed in-depth by other researchers before publication
- The articles will also contain a bibliography at the end of the article.
To locate scholarly articles in Academic Search Premier or Business Source Premier:
- Select the "Peer Reviewed" option when on the Advanced Search Screen
- Another option is to select "Journal Article" as a Publication Type on the Advanced Search
- Keep track of your results. Print, save, or email in APA format!
- Use keyword searching (not natural language)
- Use subject terms to narrow
- Use abstracts to determine relevance
- What if full-text isn’t there? Use the "Find It @ UD" link provided to locate the article in another database, have the library scan a copy for you (E-Delivery), or request via Interlibrary Loan if UD doesn't own it.
- Can usually limit by: full-text, type of source (magazine, newspaper, academic/scholarly journal), date, etc.
