Some databases don't include the full-text of articles. When there's no full-text attached, click on , which will search the Library catalog to see if we have access to the full text either electronically or in print (paper) form.
Many databases allow you to check off a 'Peer-reviewed' or 'Scholarly Journals' button on either the left or right-hand column of the search results screen. Checking this button will help limit your search to Journals which are considered Peer-reviewed. However, editorials, opinions, commentaries, and book reviews will still appear despite the fact they are not considered peer-reviewed articles.
Important: If you are still unsure if your journal is peer-reviewed, use Ulrich's Periodicals Directory to confirm for sure!
Is there an article, book, book chapter or thesis that you want/need but it is not available through a Tulane Library? Don't let that get in the way of your research! Check out some of our easy-to-use and FREE services available to help connect you with the materials you need to succeed.
If the libraries at Tulane do not have the article or book that you need, request an Interlibrary loan. The Howard-Tilton Memorial Library will then find a library that has the book or article and we'll have them send it to us or you directly.
