Scientific articles are written by experts in the field to advance the study of science. They can be found in scholarly (peer-reviewed) journals.
An example of a scientific article can be found by clicking here. The usual structure is as follows:
Title & Author Information
Review of Literature
There are several different places to search for scholarly journal articles in a scientific journal. From the MiraCosta Library homepage, look under Search and you will find a link for Databases by Subject. On the bottom right side of that page, there is a subject section titled Science, Communication, Military, & Auto Repair. This is where you will find helpful databases, including: Science in Context, Scientific American Online, and GREENR (Environment, Energy, Natural Resources). You can also look for these articles in our more general databases, such as EBSCOhost and JSTOR. Be sure to limit your search results to peer-reviewed articles when possible.
