Generally, you start with a database to find articles in scholarly journals, magazines, and newspapers.
EMU subscribes to many databases which can be discipline specific (nursing, business, education, etc...) or cross-disciplinary.
You can view a complete list of the databases EMU subscribes to here.
When you search in a database, most of the time you will begin with a keyword search to find articles which relate to your topic. The articles you find will therefore be from a variety of journals, magazines, or newspapers.
You can save time and frustration when you are looking for journal articles by limiting your search to scholarly journals.
