Scholarly jounals are writien for professional level managers and are less time-senative. Scholarly sources include articles written by experts: often professors; articles often go through a peer review process: independent experts evaluate the article before it's published; articles have footnotes and bibliographies; minimal advertising, graphics, or illustrations unless relevant to the article (for example, IT architecture images).
An example of a scholarly journal is MIS quarterly : management information systems
WHEN YOU HAVE A CITATION
To find an article when you have a citation (e.g. from a bibliography), you can search for the article title in Google Scholar, or search for the journal title in Journal Finder (search boxes at left).
If we don't subscribe to the journal, you can request a scanned copy of the article through InterLibrary Loan.
SEARCHING FOR ARTICLES BY KEYWORD
To find articles on a particular topic, use an article index, a list of which can be found on the library’s homepage under Articles & Databases. To find relevant databases, use the "Databases by Specific Subject" column.
Your search will yield a list of citations to articles, and many will link right to the articles themselves online. Look for the "Full Text," "PDF" or “Find Full Text @G” links.
