Academic Search Complete- general database. Use Linguistics as a subject term and limit to peer reviewed journals.

JSTOR-journal archive which means that current volumes may not be available for some titles. This database contains 38 linguistic titles from the 1800s up to the 2000s. Note: unless you restrict the content to articles the library has access to you will need to rely on Interlibrary Loan to acquire those items.

Project Muse-scholarly database that includes content for linguistics. Note: unless you specifically restrict the content to articles the library has access to, you will need to rely on interlibrary loan to acquire those items.
