How to Use Google to Find Articles from Scholarly Journals

Google Scholar makes it easy to “search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.”

It’s even possible to quickly access some material from the Franklin University Nationwide Library directly through Google Scholar. To customize your settings, go to Google Scholar Preferences and search for Franklin University in the Library Links area. You can follow the same steps to add OhioLINK.  Now links to the material will appear within your Google Scholar results list. You’ll still need to log in to access database articles and e-books when off-campus.

Features of Google Scholar:

  • Search all scholarly literature from one convenient place
  • Explore related works, citations, authors, and publications
  • Locate the complete document through your library or on the web
  • Keep up with recent developments in any area of research
  • Check who’s citing your publications, create a public author profile
