Use Google Scholar to Find Research Articles
Using Google Scholar to Find Scholarly Sources
Google Scholar allows you to search for a variety of types of scholarly sources, including articles, theses, books, and abstracts, and court opinions, in all disciplines and fields of study.
Use Google Scholar to get a better sense of the scope of the research available on your topic.
Finding The Full Text For Free
Links to the full text of scholarly sources are sometimes available through Google scholar, but often links lead to publishers' websites, where you will be charged a fee for full text.
If you can't find the full text of the source for free through Google Scholar, use OneSearch to find it through the Luria Library.
If the Luria Library doesn't have the full text of the source you need, use Interlibrary Loan to request it from another library, or ask a librarian for help.
