Education Research - Oakland Campus: Find Articles

This guide is designed to help graduate students in the School of Education with their Masters or PhD. level research.

How do I Find Articles . .

If you’re looking for articles on a topic, search an Article Database.

Databases are collections of articles that you can search by topic or subject.  Most of our databases offer links to the full text of articles.   

  • If you know the name of the database you want to search, start at the Databases A-Z list. 
  • If you’re not sure which database to search, you can search databases in a particular Subject, or just ask a librarian for guidance by calling 412-648-3331 or chatting online at Ask Us.

If you have a citation to an article, search PITTCat+.

PITTCat+ will list all the journals we subscribe to either online or in paper.  If the journal is online, the PITTCat+ record will offer a link directly to the journal database.   If the ULS doesn’t subscribe to the journal online, PITTCat+ will list any paper volumes and issues we have of that journal.

You can also use the Citation Linker to see if the article you are searching for is available online. 

If you’re off-campus try the E-journal search

You can search by the journal title to find out if we have a particular journal online.   Remember  that not all journals or issues of journals are available online.  To see if we have a journal either online or in paper, search PittCat+ for the journal title.

If we don’t have the journal or article you need, request the article for free through Interlibrary Loan.
