What is the difference between a magazine article and a journal article?
A magazine article is one from a non-referenced publication that is published often with characteristics such as a lot of advertising, articles not signed, and no bibliography at the end of an article. (Example: Time, Newsweek, Business Week, etc.)
A journal article is one from a scholarly referenced publication that is published often with characteristics such as long articles with bibliographies, authors name given, and not a lot of advertising.
Where can I find full-text articles?
The Library Catalog search box will retrieve both books and articles on the desired topic. Many of the databases provide the entire text (full-text) of magazine and journal articles. Searches performed using the General Databases, which are listed at the top of each Subject Guides page, will usually find more full-text articles.
