Information Systems: Find articles and papers

Finding Resources

Still not finding what you need? Find other relevant databases by browsing the database subject list. For example, Computer Science, Information Systems or Software Engineering.

Some multidisciplinary databases may also be useful to search.

Journal articles: present current research; provide highly focused information and may be required for some assignments.

If you know the name of a journal, enter it in the Library Catalogue and select the Title option.

The Library catalogue - the Library's search tool. Find information on any topic from journals, conferences, books and more.

Library databases -  search tools that index literature such as articles, papers, reports, books chapters and more. Find full text material, or the reference and abstract only.

Is the article peer reviewed? See the guide How to find peer reviewed journal articles (2 p.)

It is important to evaluate the articles/papers you find to make sure they are of a high quality. Sometimes you will be asked to use peer reviewed journal articles. See the following video and brief "How to" guide for help.
