Introduction to Literature

Article Databases

Many of these databases have a mixture of source types. Some examples:

  • JSTOR actually has only scholarly journal articles and eBook chapters. Use either type of source.
  • Literature Research Center has summaries, biographies, book reviews (opinions about a book), and critical essays from scholarly journals. Only use the critical essays.
  • Academic Search Complete has magazine articles, news articles, and scholarly journal articles. Skip news sources.
  • Ethnic NewsWatch has magazine articles, news articles, and scholarly journal articles. Skip news sources.

Please use the limiters within databases to narrow down to the types of sources you can use.
