Finding Scientific Articles: Identify Relevant Sources of Information

Step 4 - Choose your Sources

Find relevant databases

To know in which databases you can find articles related to your subject, you can ask your professor what sources (journals, databases, etc.) s/he recommends.

You can also consult the "Journal & Conference Articles " tab in the Subject Guides produced by the librarians. You will find a list of bibliographic databases recommended for each field of engineering @ Polytechnique Montréal. This list of reliable sources constitutes an excellent starting point to conduct your article search.

If needed, you can refer to databases available in other libraries.

Although scientific articles constitute excellent sources of information, other specialized documents, such as dissertations and theses, statistics, patents, and technical standards, often contain information not available elsewhere!
