Introduction to Literary Studies: Articles

Peer reviewed journals

Journals published by professional associations or a university press will have a panel of scholars who evaluate articles submitted for publication. In other words, thse editorial panels are comprised of the author's peers. If approved for publication the panel has agreed that the article will advance the thinking within the discipline.

Search for journals

How do I find a journal if I have a citation?

Literary Criticism

Use these databases to find full text literary criticism.

Project Muse/JSTOR

Project Muse and JSTOR provide full text articles from many important journals in the humanities and social sciences. Search these databases at the same time by checking Search back issues of JSTOR in the Project Muse article search.

Finding articles

Databases may include the full article, but sometimes only article citation is available.

Often, if the article text isn't included along with the citation, you'll see this Find It @GSU button instead. Click the button to get a list of possible online sources for the article you want. You may get several links if we have the article on more than one site.

Not every journal article is available online, so you may need to find it in print. Search GIL for the journal title, just like you'd search for the title of a book.

The process of finding articles can be confusing at first. Ask a librarian for help if you can't find what you need!
