4. How do I find journal articles? 5. How do I tell that something found online is or isnt a journal article? 6. How do I reference articles in my work? 7. How do I reference articles in my bibliographies? 8. How do I get help or find out more? WHY ARE JOURNALS SO USEFUL? Journal issues are published throughout the year. This means you can use journals to access very recent and current information. Journal articles are often focused on more precise subjects than books, because they are shorter.

Good-quality journal articles are peer-reviewed before publication. This means the research is more reliable than most other material found online. FINDING USEFUL INFORMATION IN A JOURNAL ARTICLE Conclusion Abstract Introduction Reference list

Scholar Browsing journals I FOUND IT ONLINE. WHAT IS IT?! When it comes to referencing you need to know what sort of resource you have in front of you. If you accessed a journal article online, its a journal article not a webpage. If youre not sure if its a journal article, look for clues. Does it have a DOI? A volume number? Page numbers? If its in PDF format, the information may be in the header and the footer of the first page.

If youve found something online and you cant work out what is or where it came from, ask yourself if you should really be using it. Is it good-quality research?
