An article (also: scholarly article, academic article) is a published piece of research appearing in a journal (either print or electronic) or an edited volume. Sometimes, articles are also called papers, especially before actual publication. Articles can have one or more authors; they are often peer-reviewed as part of the publication process, and many have unique identifiers known as DOIs.
You can search directly for relevant articles in the Library Catalogue by selecting 'Search everything'; or if you know which journal an article appeared in, you can search for the title of the journal in the Library Catalogue (for print journals) or in the E-journals Finder (for electronic journals). If you are interested in an article that the library does not provide access to, you can request it as an Inter Library Loan.
