Scholarly Journal Articles

Quick Find

Search across almost all of the library's fulltext articles, ebooks, books and more.

Tips for using QuickFind

  • Search on keywords from your topic rather than entire phrases or questions
  • Use "Advanced Search" to search specifically for articles by particular authors or within specific journals 
  • Use AND to add more words & get fewer, more specific results e.g. marketing AND plan 
  • Use OR to add additional terms of similar meaning to get more results e.g. company OR organisation OR firm 
  • Use "quotation marks" around words that you want to keep together e.g. "strategic plan" 

Filter your results on the left hand side:

  • Limit to "peer-reviewed only" if you want just scholarly peer reviewed articles
  • Limit publication date to Last 5 years
  • Select a format 
  • Limit to a study area - business, economics & social sciences are all useful
