Open Access Journals
Most college and university online databases are not free to the public. Users must use a username and password to access them. However, as you search the web, you can find online scholarly journals; these are "open access" articles. They are free to the public. Below are some of the free scholarly journal databases--some will just provide an abstract or citation, in which case you can use the citation to find the article in an institution's databases, or by an interlibrary loan (ILL).
