About this Lesson

Increase your academic grades by using journal articles

This Quick Fix looks at how to use academic journal articles in your college and university classes. Journal Articles are the most reliable sources we can use to support our assignments, but they are also the most difficult to read. They are also usually long. But the good news is we often don't have to read all of them - or even most of them! In this lesson, learn how to find, read, use, and cite journal articles in your assignments.
