Academic Journal? Scholarly Article? Article Database?


So your professor said you need a better
article? She was all like and then you are like then she goes and you’re like Relax. Let the Library explain. An academic journal or a scholarly journal Is like a magazine for nerds. Academic journals are written for
experts in particular fields. Professors, researchers, and students read
them to stay up-to-date in their research. So… an academic journal article is like a magazine article written by a nerd. Academic journal articles are written by
experts. Your professors write them, and
sometimes edit and review them, too. So… an academic or scholarly journal is a
publication by scholars and an academic or scholarly journal
article is an article in one of those journals. Right. That’s where the database comes in. A database at least in this sense of the word is sort of like a search engine for articles. Except it’s better. You can search just for scholarly
articles, narrow your search easily, and print full text. So… if you want a scholarly article, you could flip through a journal, which might have five or six
articles in it. But you’d be much better off searching a database that includes hundreds of journals and
thousands of articles. Not to mention that the library has over
one hundred databases. Try it yourself! Visit our website at lehman.edu/library and select “Databases.” From this page, you’ll have two options: to see a list of our databases in
alphabetical order, select “Database A-Z List.” To see a list of our databases grouped
by subject or discipline, select “Databases by Subject.” And remember: the Leonard Lief Library is
