Organization Development: Finding Articles

Using library resources to research topics related to organization development

Finding Organizational Development Journal Articles

Start with the library databases listed below to find scholarly research articles on your topic.   As some databases include non-scholarly resources such as popular magazine articles and books, you should limit your search to Academic/Scholarly or Peer-Reviewed Journal articles. (Look for limiters on the left side of the search results screen.)

Need a refresher on peer-reviewed and scholarly journal articles?  Check out some of the links in the box below, to the right.  Looking for articles in a particular journal?   Follow the tab above for a list of top journals in the Organizational Development field or search for a title of a journal in the journal search box below.   

Google Scholar is also a great resource for locating scholarly journal articles.  Be sure to check out the Using Google Scholar tab above to show you how to link your results to subscription content through BGSU Libraries.   You should rarely need to pay for an article!

  • Articles from BGSU are typically delivered in 1 Business Day
  • Articles requested from other institutions are typically sent within 2 - 3 business days, but can take longer.
