Accounting: Articles & Data

A University of Lethbridge Library guide to Accounting research and resources.

Finding Journal Articles

Journal articles contain more up-to-date research than books, and are a great way to supplement your research.  The U of L Library subscribes to many indexes and databases which allow you to search by keyword, subject, and many more fields (ie company; product; geography; person) to find articles on your topic.  These tools provide not only the citation for the articles, but usually also abstracts (a summary of what the article is about) and often link you to the full text of the article.  If the full text isn't available either from the database in which you found the citation or by clicking the 'find full text' button, you can request the article via interlibrary loan. Remember that if your subject is somewhat multidisciplinary, databases from other subject areas may help.  Database search tips
