How do I find articles on my topic?
To find articles on your topic, you will want to search in a journal article database (not in Harvest library catalog).
Looking for suggestions about which databases to use? Consult a library subject guide.
Use the Databases A-Z list if you already know which database to search in.
Electronic Journals A-Z
Use this list if you already know which journal you are looking for. Electronic journals are also accessible via UC-elinks from databases and catalogs.
How to use the VPN
To access most databases and electronic journals you must be using a computer that is connected to the UC Davis network (on-campus) or The Library's VPN (off-campus). This short video demonstrates how to use the VPN.
Peer reviewed journals
Peer review is an important process by which the manuscripts submitted to a journal are evaluated for quality -- by one or more subject experts in addition to the editor -- before being accepted for publication.
Some journal databases will permit you to filter search results according to whether they are in peer-reviewed journals.
How do I get to the full-text article? UC e-Links
Many UC Davis Library databases include links to full-text articles via UC-eLinks. Here is a short video about how to use this service.
