French articles online?

Where can I find good academic articles written in French online?

For a French reading class, I have to translate a couple of pages of a journal article written in French. Something related to religious studies would be best (and New Testament would be ideal), as it would be directly related to the discipline in which I'm studying, which is a requirement of the assignment. Thanks!

http://scholar.google.fr/ is probably your best bet. I don't know how to write "new testament" in french, but if you have a couple keywords... voila!

Google Scholar, set your language preference to French.

Le nouveau testament. I've found in Google Scholar most of what you can see for free will be sort of old, thus will likely use words you'll have to look up (if you're not a native speaker). I'm at a loss as to what terms would bring up more specific articles.

You might do a search for "nouveau testament" in Laval théologique et philosophique. You'll have access to any article published before 2007 or so.

if you have access, Jstor might be useful.

Good call. Jstor is where I eventually ended up finding a couple of good articles. Novum Testamentum is a journal there that has articles in English, German, and French, so it worked well to find a good one.

There is also Persee.fr for social sciences.
