What's the Difference Between a Journal and a Journal Article?

Citation Tracking

Tracking down journal articles which are cited or referred to in papers which you have identified as being relevant to your research is a useful way of locating articles related to your research.  Once you have identified relevant papers in a search, many databases give you the option to link to or find ‘Citing Papers’, those that cite the paper you have found, which are also likely to be relevant.  


Databases can be used to find journal articles on a particular subject. You can view an A-Z of databases on our Library Guides page.

Google Scholar

Goolge Scholar can be used to find specific scholarly articles.
