About Franklin Articles+

Franklin Articles+ contains

Articles+, a component of Franklin, is a single search entry point into the Penn Libraries' large collection of ebooks, scholarly journals, newspaper articles, conference proceedings, dissertations, as well as open access content. Franklin Articles+ also indexes the content in ScholarlyCommons, the University of Pennsylvania's institutional repository. When full-text content is available, direct links to full-text are provided. Search results can be expanded to beyond our Library collection. A list of Content Types available in Franklin Articles+ is available.

Content not in Articles+

While it does contain information from most of the Libraries' databases, content for some databases is not included in Articles+. For print works owned by Penn, consult the Franklin Catalog. Specialized or comprehensive research should also include the Libraries' subject databases - See the Penn Libraries for access to other databases. For information about which databases are best for your subject area, contact a Subject Librarian.

Articles+ vs Google Scholar?

Both Articles+ and Google Scholar let you search across massive collections of scholarly and popular material, but Articles+ provides indexing to full-text materials unique to Penn. When you do a full-text limit, you are limiting your results to Penn's full-text holdings and open access content. There will be content common to both databases and some will be unique to both. They also sort by relevance differently. With Articles+ you can limit to scholarly/peer-reviewed articles in the basic search and just Peer Reviewed in the Advanced search.
