As a professor, student, or researcher,
we will to surround ourselves with a good journal articles. They’re very
important in class discussions, reports, case studies and theses. While
there are plenty of sources available to get journal articles, they are
often costly. The cheapest can cost around $30. If we are researching
our topic, it’s not really practical to pay $30 for each article. This
post is going to show how to find free, yet high quality, journal
articles. It’s important that we have a clear idea of our topic. What’s
your study about? What are the keywords that you might use in order to
find related literature review? Having the keywords ready can help you
find what you need much faster.
The literature review aims:
- To summarize and evaluate the existing knowledge on a particular topic (Basic LR)
- To know what has been known or unknown/researched in order to identify the research gap.
- To uncover a research problem for further study (Advanced LR)
- To question the current state of knowledge about a topic in order to define an area for new research.
Having the keywords ready can help you find what you need much faster. Based on my experience, some relevant sites you may consider to get free:
– OPENTEXT PINSTRIP
– Metasearch engine
Metasearch engine is a search tool that
sends user requests to several other search engines and/or databases and
aggregates the results into a single list or displays them according to
their source. Metasearch engines enable users to enter search criteria
once and access several search engines simultaneously.
– Google Scholar
. Type scholar.google.com
on your browser’s address bar, or simply type “google scholar” on
Google search. Enter your keywords and see what comes up. For example,
I’m doing a study on data mining since year 2012. So, I simply typed
“data mining 2012”.
– Directory of Open Access Journals. DOAJ is a community-curated online directory that indexes and provides access to high quality, open access, peer-reviewed
journals. DOAJ is independent. All funding is via donations, 50% of which comes from
sponsors and 50% from members and
publisher members. All DOAJ services are free of charge including being indexed in DOAJ. All data is freely available.
Please wait for Part 2. I revealed how to get journal for free, in “PART 2”, I’ll keep revealing to get journal, even thesis for free.
