What Kind of Article Do I Need?: On the Web

Finding Articles on the Web

For program specific websites with credible, recommended information, please consult the research guide for your program linked at the bottom of the library homepage.

These are some general websites where you can find credible and freely accessible information, including peer-reviewed articles.

What Is Open Access?

Open-access (OA) literature is credible, web-accessible (outside the library), free of charge, and often peer-reviewed and/or scholarly in origin. “The Internet provides a new opportunity to bring information to a wider audience at virtually no marginal cost, and allow them to use it in new, innovative ways. This has resulted in a call for new framework to allow research results to be more easily accessed and used” (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition [SPARC]).
