Wikipedia:Journal sources

This page links to library searches, online databases, and other venues where you can locate a journal article by title, journal, or identifier (such as DOI or PMID). It's a good idea to start with a search engine, as it will have the most comprehensive coverage. However, many of the online databases listed below include free full text.

If you're looking for a source that isn't a journal article, try the Find your Source guide. For books, you can also use Special:BookSources to search by ISBN.

Full searchEdit

These sites include all academic content, so results may be behind a paywall.



Open access searchEdit

These sites allow you to search for articles that are entirely free to read.

Author-uploaded repositoriesEdit

These are sites where researchers post copies of their published articles for other researchers to access, sometimes in full text. Where no full text is available, you can contact the author directly to request a copy.
