Types of Articles - Examples of two different type of scholarly articles published in academic journals. 

Finding Articles - This page will explain how to locate articles in the library in addition to an annotated list of the electronic databases used most frequently for sociology. These databases will provide you with access to articles appearing in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals as well as items published in popular sources such as news magazines, newspapers and trade publications. This page will also provide you with a link to Google Scholar and Interlibrary Loan via ILLiad.
