Finding Articles in Journals

Articles for your assignments may be found in the journals listed below.  Browse the journals by selecting the year of publication and then the volume and issue numbers.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is just one of the many tools that can be used to find articles.  Since the search engine has few options to limit search results, you need to evaluate your sources before using them in an assignment.  See the Peer Review box below for help.  For further assistance, visit the Reference & Research desk at the Library.

For instructions on how to connect Google Scholar to UofT Library's resources, check out this link.
