Finding Articles

Use these databases available through ASU Library subscription for the most thorough search for articles.  If off-campus, you will be prompted for your name and Banner ID number before passing through to the database. You may need to check other databases as well depending on your topic. These can include the article databases:  ScienceDirect, Cambridge Journals Online, EconLit, SpringerLink, and Sociological Abstracts.

Find open access articles- Search Box

Search the Web using Google Scholar to access scholarly articles either published in free, open access journals or in tradtional subscription journals but posted in e-repositories and on university websites.  You can also use Google Scholar to search through some library online databases such as JSTOR but be sure you are on campus so the database recognizes you as a subscriber.
