Scholarly or Popular Articles?

 When you search for journal articles, you need to know the differences between scholarly journal articles and popular magazine articles. Citing from peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles will add authority to your paper.  Watch the short video below  for an explanation of  the difference between magazine articles and scholarly articles.


Use Summon, the search tool on the  University of Victoria Libraries  homepage to search for  both online and in print holdings. Once on the results page of Summon use the left sidebar to refine or limit the search to  journal articles.
