Where can I find scholarly articles on my paper topic?

Start with a good journal index (a database that lists the articles of particular journals). Three especially useful databases for Classics-related topics are L'Année Philologique, Nestor, and TOCS-IN. Medievalists will want to begin with the International Medieval Bibliography and the MLA Bibliography. Remember, each article database only covers certain years of certain journals. To ensure that you have done a comprehensive search, search the same keywords and subjects in a variety of databases. See: Classics article databases and Medieval Studies article databases.

If you have a particular citation in hand and would like to see if the full text is available online, use the Journals Search Page.
