Search with descriptive words (i.e., keywords) about your topic in a research database (e.g., Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, etc.), and select limiters for journal articles, peer-reviewed journals, etc. Find recommended databases for specific disciplines in the library's subject research guides or a complete list in Databases A-Z.

If you use OneSearch on the library homepage, refine your results by adding a limiter either for scholarly & peer-review or for journal article. The latter would include both scholarly journal articles and popular/consumer and trade/industry magazine articles.
