Finding Journal Articles

Journal articles are a secondary resource useful for analyses and opinions on legal issues. 

To find a journal article where you have the citation, search for the journal title in Primo Search.  Navigate to the volume, issue and page number of the journal citation.

To find an article on a particular topic, search in a Journal Database. AGIS Plus Text is highly recommended for Australian content.
