Review articles

Annual Reviews are journals that publish review articles (overviews of a topic) only.

You can also search Web of Science or Scopus for a topic and filter results for review articles.

Introduction sections

Look up original research articles on your topic but read the introduction section first. It will provide an overview of the topic. Keep track of the articles it cites too, and look up the references that might be useful.

Use Web of Science or Google Scholar to look up primary source research articles.

Use Knovel to find overviews of common science topics (with citations).

Getting to the full text of journal articles and books

The University of Minnesota Libraries has access to millions of resources. You can find many of these resources available in full-text online. 

This guide gives some tips and tricks to using different resources to get to full-text.

If the Libraries do not own the article or item, you can request it and we will try to get it from another library and deliver it to you online.
