Academic articles are published in academic journals. They are usually more up-to-date than published books.
Peer-reviewed means that articles have been reviewed by ‘peers’ (other researchers working in the area) of the authors.
Ask a Librarian if you need help confirming peer-review on a particular article or journal, or if you are unsure what type of article you are looking at.
Library Search searches multiple library databases simultaneously. It covers most of AUT Library’s journals.
Multidisciplinary databases, such as Scopus or Taylor & Francis Online, cover a wide range of subjects.
Subject-specific databases, such as ERIC or PubMed, are collections of academic journal articles that concentrate on a specific subject area.
Many Library databases also offer ways to limit your search, so you can find:
AUT Google Scholar gives you access to articles published in scholarly journals.
AUT articlelinker will connect you to full-text articles available through the Library.
Plan your search:
If AUT Library doesn't have an article you need, it is likely to be available through our networks of other libraries worldwide, or through open access options.
If you have discovered the article by searching in Library Search, click on ‘Check for other full text’ in the ‘Availability’ box. Search again and request from another Library.
Otherwise you can go straight to the article interloan service, ArticleReach.
