The length of articles will depend on the topic and the database you are searching in.  The first thing you might want to do is limit your results to full-text otherwise your search results will include citations and abstracts. If you are looking for a substantial article some of our databases include a limiter where you can specify the page length. 

The limit for Number of Pages in EBSCO for instance may be at the bottom of the screen.
