Engineering Subject Guide — Journal Articles

This guide offers information for students and faculty, on and off campus, on locating library resources and services suited for the School of Engineering.

What Are Journal Articles?

Journal articles in the sciences are almost always a write-up of grant-funded laboratory or field research. Each article provides a brief overview of the research study, a description of methods used, results, and a conclusion. A small portion of science articles are 'review' articles; these are articles that summarize research studies. Journal articles are peer-reviewed. A growing number of so-called "pre-prints" are beginning to be published in science fields.
