Featured Databases for Second Language Studies
Read this first. Use the suggested article databases to search for and find journal articles on a TOPIC. Often the full text of the article will be immediately accessible in the database you search. Sometimes, however, the database only provides a citation (article title, journal name, year, etc.) for the article. If you have only a citation, determine if the library has the journal that contains the article you want by following the steps to find journals (in the box to the right).
See More Databases for Second Language Studies to search for articles in cognate disciplines.
