Literature in English 1350-1550: Journal Articles

Journal articles on SOLO

Using keywords to search for your topic on SOLO will include journal articles when you use the Search Everything option, so it's possible to find many full-text journal articles via SOLO. 

Most of the journal articles in SOLO are provided via Primo Central, a cross-disciplinary resource comprising citations to about 400 million journal articles. Primo Central performs a broad search engine type search which is comparable to Google Scholar; specialist bibliographic databases tend to focus on specific subject areas and to provide more features and functionality, so you may also find it useful to search for journal articles in some of the bibliographic databases suggested on this page.

MLA Bibliography
