Finding Articles @ MSU

Articles are typically found in journals, magazines and newspapers. The articles found in journals are primarily published for an academic or scholarly audience and are usually peer-reviewed, while newspaper and magazine articles are more often written for the general public. Article databases will help you identify journal, magazine and newspaper articles on your topic. Colorado State University Library has developed online guides to assist you in evaluating journal articles as well as in understanding the difference between trade, scholarly and popular periodicals. A list of some of the databases useful for business research at the MSU Libraries follows. NOTE: If the item you are looking for is an article from a magazine, journal or newspaper that the MSU Libraries do not own, you may request it through Interlibrary Loan.
