Research articles from scholarly publications (quantity 2-7): specifically, no book reviews, editorials, or commentaries. Review articles of research (including extensive lists of referenced research papers) are acceptable and encouraged, if available. Articles may or may not be peer-reviewed.
To get the most accurate results when you search for articles and other sources in these databases, think about the main ideas in your research question. The two or three main concepts will become the keywords you use in your searches.
Identify synonyms or similar words so you have more options to try when you're entering searches. Here's an example of this process.
If the article you find in a database doesn't appear to have the full-text, click on the Full Text button (or link) to see if it's available in another database. If this doesn't work, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan and the full-text article will be delivered to your inbox!
