Scholarly (a.k.a. peer-reviewed or academic) articles are found in journals, which publish issues containing new articles at regular periods (this is why journals are a type of periodical). Journals are organized online in databases, some of which are accessible for free on the web and others which require a fee. The library subscribes to dozens of scholarly databases, both general and subject-based, which students can access for free using their LRCCD login. If you are looking for resources in a specific field, going to a subject database will produce more relevant results. If you find an article that you would like to have but the full-text is not available, you can request it for free through interlibrary loan.
Scholarly journals, newspapers, magazines, and newsletters in medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, healthcare administration and pre-clinical sciences. Produced by the US National Library of Medicine.
