Finding Articles in Journals, Magazines, and Newspapers - Plus Conference Papers

Finding Research Papers, Magazine Articles, & Newspaper Articles

For help in finding articles, we recommend using indexing tools.  Some indexes only index; some index and include text for some of the articles.  Always, though, you should see the citation for the article.  This helps find the text for the article in the UT subscriptions.  These databases are some of our favorites.  

You will get totally worn out if you use all of them, so it is better to focus your efforts.  Academic Search Complete is a good place to start.  Each of the others has a special job or feature. 

Also, the Libraries offer many other databases which index articles.  There's a big list.  Included in these databases are full-text products from society publishers such as the American Chemical Society (ACS), IEEE, ASME, ASCE, and others.  (See below for some that may be of particular interest.)

This is a special category of databases.  The databases focus on the publications from one or a few societies.  Be sure to also use a more comprehensive indexing product (such as Compendex) to include more complete coverage of the literature.

"Find it at UT"

Be sure and use this helpful tool

When you see Find it at UT, or a similar phrase, usually you will want to click on it.  The hope is to find the text of a journal article or information about electronic holdings of a journal.
