The below is a select list of peer-reviewed journals, which are publications that contain research articles. Each journal publishes new issues multiple times a year.
These databases search across thousands of journals and scholarly books.
JMU's databases of scholarly articles require different search strategies from Google.
AND- Searches for both terms in the same record

? Represents a single character, anywhere in the word: Ex: analy?e
“...” Searches for records with the exact phrase
Often, simply searching the title of an article in quotation marks in Google Scholar will bring you to the electronic version.
Alternatively, search for the journal title using the "Find a peer-reviewed journal by title" box below.
