To find just about any type of article you need to use one of the online databases provided by the Library. To find them, go to the Library Home Page (www.iup.edu/library)and select the "Article Databases" option. This will give you a list of all the journal databases available to you. Just select the database you want from the alphabetic list. For your topic, I would suggest looking at the following criminology databases: Criminal Justice Periodicals Index, Criminal Justice Abstracts, or Criminolgy : Sage Full-Text Collection You may also find information in these business databases: Business Source Premie,r Business & Company Resource Center, or Business Full Text. I would also suggest looking at some of the general academic databases, such as: Academic Search Complete, Academic OneFile, InfoTrac OneFile or Wilson OmniFile. Almost all of these databases will have an option to limit your search to peer-reviewed or referreed journals. If the full text of the article is not immediately available from the database, be sure to click on the "Check PILOT for holdings" link. This will perform a search in our online catalog for that journal title to see if the journal is available here in the library in physical form or from some other database in electronic form.
