MGMT 3253 Organizational Behavior: Find Articles

Scholarly / Peer-Reviewed vs. Popular/Trade

While Wikipedia can sometimes be a good starting point, it is not considered "scholarly."  If you are you having trouble distinguishing between the peer-reviewed/scholarly journals from the trade publication or popular magazines, Below is a link to a document that will help explain the differences.  


It is also important to be able to distinguish between review articles and research articles. A review article’s primary purpose is not to present new research, but to summarize, analyze, discuss, and provide an overview of previously published work on a topic. A research article is designed to present new research, methods, and/or findings. Research articles often employ the IMRAD (Introduction, Methods, Research, and Discussion) format. Below are a few articles of interest on this topic.

Finding Full-Text Articles

Here is a tutorial on how to find full-text articles.

Finding a Cited Article in Full-Text

If a particular database does not provide access to a needed full-text article, try finding the article in full-text in a different library database by using either the library's online catalog (select the "Everything" tab and enter the title of the journal), or by navigating to "E-Journals by Title" (available from the "Research" drop-down menu on the Library Home Page).

For any article that is not found in either the Library Databases or the Library's print collection, you can use our Interlibrary Loan service:
