For electronic/online journals: Remember to check the year/issue coverage for the eJournal! (The library may have the journal electronically, but not in the year you need.)
Don't be surprised if the same journal is found in more than one database. But again: check the year/issue coverage dates as different databases may subscribe to different years of the journal.
If the journal is not available online, you can search the FGCU Library Catalog to see if we have a print copy on the shelf. (Yes, journals still exist in print...)
If the journal is not available electronically or in print, you can request specific articles within a journal via InterLibrary Loan (aka Illiad.)
So, what are "core journals?"
Core journals refer to the journals within a given specialty that are the most important ones for that specialty. They are frequently among the most well-known journals: the most often read, consulted, or cited by other researchers, educators, and practitioners within that specialty.
HINT: Core journals are also good journals for students to consult who are looking for research articles in a given speciality!
