Articles in Databases

Before you search the databases below, make sure that you've listed the key concepts and ideas in your research and that you create a list of any synonyms for those concepts to use as keywords in your search.

When you find a relevant citation, click on "Check the RIC libraryto open another window which will indicate if the library has access to the journal and in what format (print or online or some of each for different spans of years). If the next display does not contain a link to the journal title or to Full Text, then use the "Request this item" link to request through InterLibrary Loan (ILL)".  REMEMBER: requests for articles held in Rhode Island will require a MINIMUM of 7 - 10 days; those outside RI will require longer.

COVID update: walk-in access to many of these other libraries may still be unavailable. Please Request articles through ILL and indicate on your ILL form if there is an end date by which the article must be received.  DO NOT say "ASAP" - the ILL folks ALWAYS do that.   If you need the article immediately, consider doing a TITLE search for the JOURNAL (not the article) in the Library Catalog to see if the JOURNAL is held at another Rhode Island library where you can walk in and copy it.

Citing Articles

See the Online Writing Lab [OWL] at Purdue's guide to the Chicago Manual of Style and use the section on Periodicals for guidance on citing articles in your writing.
