The interpretation coverage of the term digital literacy has gone further from just the ability to operate applications and make use of them for learning purposes, to a higher definition such as to maneuver systems for digital works such as online journal system. This research aims at investigating to what extent students‘ digital literacy as well as their comprehension on journal article composition develop through the implementation of journal article reading-based activities. This study was carried out with as many as 25 fourth semester students in the English Education Department at IAIN Salatiga, undertaking the course of Reading 4. This qualitative study made use of journal article review, and open-ended questionnaire, peer feedbacks, and observation to collect data. The result shows that students‘ digital literacy subskills in the form of searching, locating, downloading articles, and identifying article‘s elements on the online journal system of Register Journal of IAIN Salatiga and Leksema Journal of IAIN Surakarta were confirmed, with considerable inaccuracy on drawing comparisons of the elements in the two journals; students‘ ability to identify article elements‘ contents was confirmed, with considerable difficulty in extracting the key contents majorly in introduction and discussion part of an article due to the text length and complexity factor; lastly, this activity has helped students figure out the potential of their own area of research interest. These findings bring forward the recommendation to apply more journal article-based activities integrated throughout most ELT courses. Keywords: digital literacy, journal article, Online Journal System (OJS), reading activity
