Tips from SUNY New Paltz, Sojourner Truth Library, on distinguishing between scholarly and popular periodical publications:
Basic Databases for Research Using Published Sources:
Academic Search Complete [other databases can be added to your search]
Electronic Journal Center - Available through OhioLINK
Nexis Uni - news, editorials, legal cases and law reviews, and business information
Business Source Complete - Index, abstracts, and full text covering scholarly business publications.
Do I have to print every article?
No - You can save articles to your network or "travel" drive, email them to yourself, or save citations and abstracts using copy/paste to a .doc file for later selection and retrieval. There are even ways to make the database generate a custom list of citations and abstracts for you - just ASK US for the details.
