Periodicals are continuous publications such as newspapers, magazines, or scholarly journals. They are usually issued on a regular basis — e.g. weekly, monthly or quarterly.
Databases index articles found in periodicals. A database search will result in a list of citations to articles. Many citations provide links to the full text of the article. If full text is not found, check our Journals page. Your article may be full text in another database or may be available in the library.
