Find Journal Articles and More

Because articles from journals from many different disciplines may be relevant to your topic, multidisciplinary databases and databases for various disciplines are listed here.
Google Scholar enables you to search for literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts, and technical reports from all broad areas of research.
