Article searching tips

  • An article search can often turn up all kinds of information on your company or industry.
  • Be creative with your keywords describing your issue or topic. Search on terms like "target and education" or "supply chain or SCM or logistics" or "best practices," etc. to see what turns up.
  • Articles are a great source for independent discussion of your company's involvement in social issues, and may also pick up local news sources with additional information about your company.
  • Be on the lookout for research articles related to your topic--look for the data section to see what resources the authors cite.

Article Databases

Google Scholar Search

Google Scholar provides a familiar interface and method for searching scholarly literature across a wide array of disciplines and sources. You can find articles, theses, books, abstracts and other documents that are buried in Kresge Library databases or stored in academic institutional repositories around the world.

Google Scholar is not Google.  Google Scholar is not searching the web at large, but a set of trusted resources that specifically focus on scholarly literature. Google Scholar is a good place to start to get a sense of where the scholarly literature on your topic is located. 

You can also set Google Scholar up to link directly into the Library databases that you have access to as a Ross and UM student.
