English: Journal Articles & Databases

Resources for English

Why Use Journals?

  • Articles are more up-to-date than books
  • They offer greater detail and insight into research
  • Peer-reviewed articles are considered more reliable

How Do I Reference An Article?

Referencing articles you've used is important - it demonstrates that you've researched your topic, it allows others to find the article to read for themselves, and it avoids accusations of plagairism.

Check out our Citing and Referencing page for more information.
