A Journal database is a collection of information resources (journal articles, books, book chapters etc) organised so it can be easily searched, accessed, managed and updated.
Databases help you to find high quality, up-to-date journal articles that have been published by respected publishers and publications.
If you have been asked to find scholarly articles for your assignment, you will need to search a database.
