Citation Management Options

Before you start research for your paper (or as soon as possible after you have started!) identify a citation management tool to use. This will help you keep track of your research, and will also help you organize and format your citations when writing.

Finding Scholarly Journal Articles

Some databases will include the full-text of articles, but others will include the  button which links to full-text when available, or gives you the option to request articles for free through Interlibrary Loan's Illiad service.

If you know the name of the article and/or journal you're looking for, you can use one of the options below.

Legislative, Legal, and other Government Sources

Statistical Sources

Selecting a Journal for Article Submission

In addition to the suggestions below, look at the journals you are considering citing in your own article for ideas. Depending on your concentration and topic, you might look at the journal lists on the Emergency Management and Social Work guides for ideas.

When considering a journal, take a close look at the author instructions/submission guidelines, as well as the articles from recent issues. Remember, if we don't subscribe to the journal you're considering, you can request recent articles through Interlibrary loan. There is no limit to how many articles you may request!
