SPCH 301 Theories and Principles of Human Communication - Webber: Databases, Journals & Articles

This guide was created to assist students in Dr. Webber's Theories & Principles of Human Communication Class

Finding Articles

When you read encyclopedia articles, textbooks, books, and articles about your topic, note references (often linked in online documents) for other resources that are relevant.  Search disciplinary databases for finding scholarly articles in a certain field look at the Works Cited or References page for similar articles. Try limiting to References Available in the online databases. This will result in articles with available references.  Make sure you use the full-text of articles. Be aware of the difference between HTML and PDF full-text formats. When all you have is a citation, use Full Text Finder! Whether you find a citation in a book or by a search in a database, if there is NO full-text, go directly to Journal Finder to determine if USC Upstate Library has access to the full article. If you have no luck Ask a Librarian!
