      • Tip: try searching YouTube by the title of your favorite journal publication to see if that journal also produces a YouTube channel.

Journal Articles

CALM Humanities & the Art - Philosophy Journal Articles

Consider including journal articles as required or supplemental reading for your courses. Search through our Philosophy databases for articles. Just be sure to direct students to the article by permalink (or static URL) rather than posting the PDF directly in your Cougar Course. This will ensure two things: 1) that we are complying with copyright and publisher restrictions, and 2) that our journal usage is counted (this allows us to justify maintaining our subscriptions).
This page provides examples illustrating how to find permalinks in the Library’s databases.
Please contact your librarian if you are still unsure of how to find the permalink.
