Need Scholarly Journals?  Check the "Scholarly," "Peer Reviewed" or "Refereed Publications" option when you do your search if it is present (e.g. in Academic OneFile, General OneFile or Masterfile Complete). If you are a college or university student, your school library likely subscribes to databases with better coverage of scholarly and professional journals, which you can probably access using your student ID. See our Libraries page for links.
