Finding the TEXT of an article

In any of our databases and sometimes on Google Scholar, if you do not see a PDF or HTML link to an article, you should see a Find it @ MU button.

When you click this button it will either automatically take you to the article or show you a screen that will tell you if we have this article and where to find it if we do.

If we don't have an article online or in print, you can order it via Interlibrary Loan.  In most cases you will receive your article online via your MU e-mail account within a few business hours.  There is no charge for this service.

Is this journal peer-reviewed?

Look up the journal title to determine if the source is peer-reviewed.
Check the journal's website:  look for the 'about' or 'about this journal' section. There should be a statement that the journal is peer reviewed or uses the peer review process. You might also see the phrase 'refereed.'
