Finding Articles

Academic Journals, Newspapers & Magazines

You can find FREE, full-text articles from journals, newspapers, & magazines through the library's databases. Sometimes your professors will require that you use "scholarly" or "peer-reviewed" resources from academic journals--these are usually quite lengthy, include technical language, & are written by a professional in the field. Other times you may want to use "popular" resources like magazines & newspapers--these are written for a general audience so are usually a lot shorter, easier to read, & may include a lot of advertisements. Before getting started on your research, it's important to know what kind of resources your professor allows.

You can do your research from off-campus 24/7 by connecting to the databases through the library's website & entering in your name and 7-Digit College ID number. Not sure what your ID number is? Go to MYCSTATE & use the link for "Look Up Username/Reset Your Cincinnati State Password" to retrieve it. Watch our short "Looking Up Your College ID" video for more instructions.
