2. Confirm that it is a Research Article

Limiting your search results to articles published in peer reviewed scholarly journals is the first step. 
Scholarly Journals include other types of documents, such as essays, literature reviews, book reviews, commentary, letters to the editor, announcements, etc. So...

How do I know if it is a research article? 

A research article reports the original work of a scholar and will present evidence and conclusions.

Read the Abstract (summary of the article) or Introduction (first paragraph)  to identify the type of article and the topics covered. 

A research article must have:

  • a named Author
  • a Bibliography or References
  • PDF format available
  • more than a few pages

Getting Articles from Other Libraries thru Interlibrary Loan

If the article you need is not available in full-text from the CIA Library, you can request it via Interlibrary Loan (ILL), a free service for CIA students, faculty and staff. Learn more about ILL.
