Journal articles (also called academic or scholarly or peer-reviewed articles) can be found either online or in print. For help finding journal articles using the Library Catalogue and databases see our guide.

When you find an article online, using resources such as the Library Catalogue or databases subscribed to by SFU, you are using an electronic journal article.
Typically when citing an article you need the following: author, title of article, date of publication, title of publication, volume, issue, page numbers, and either a DOI or URL.
