How Scholarly Articles are Published
Or, What binge watching can tell you about academic research.
An article (like an episode) contains a complete argument (like a plot) but is also part of a larger scholarly conversation (like a narrative arc).
A year’s worth of articles (like episodes) adds up to a volume (like a season).
These regularly released collections are part of an overall journal (like a series). Some have completed their run, and some are ongoing.
Journals (like series) are made available by databases (like networks). Some are focused on a particular topic. Some have a wide variety of content.
OneSearch searches nearly all of Oviatt Library’s databases at the same time. OneSearch also finds books, videos, music, and more. If you need help finding a specific article, choosing a database, or doing any kind of research, call 818-677-2285 or text 818-900-2965. Librarians are here to help.
