Italian Studies: Journal articles

Browzine test

What is a peer-reviewed journal article?

Peer-reviewed journal articles are evaluated and critiqued by researchers and experts in the field before being published. They are high quality academic sources of information.

The best resources for finding journal articles in your field of study are highlighted on this page.

Electronic journals

We subscribe to over 42,000 unique electronic journals.

Access to e-journals on campus is normally automatic, although in some cases a username and password are required. This may be either your University central username and password, or another password stipulated by the publisher. 


You will often see a '' tab when looking through your search results in our electronic resources. This tab can be used to see if The University of Manchester Library has access to a particular article in either online or print format.

Articles not held by the library can be ordered via our Inter-Library Loan service.

If you are using Google Scholar on campus, the Findit@Manchester link will appear automatically next to your list of search results.

Databases are the best way of finding peer-reviewed articles on your topic as they index and provide access to articles from thousands of different journal titles.

The University of Manchester Library subscribes to over 400 databases but not all of these will be relevant to your subject. You can find the key databases for your subject by using the Databases tab in this guide or by accessing the Databases A-Z list.
