Scholarly & Peer-Reviewed Journals
Scholarly journals are particularly important in academic research.
They contain original research by scholars in a specific discipline.
Articles include in-text citations and references.
Articles in peer-reviewedjournals go through a rigorous vetting process.
Many databaseshave a box that will allow you to limit your results to articles from scholarly or peer-reviewed journals.
Citation Trails are Scholarship as Conversation
Look for additional sources in an item'sbibliography, notes, references or works cited page. This is a way to see the attitudes, ideas and evidence the writer is drawing from.
Google Scholar and some databases also allow you to go forward to find scholarship reacting to that work. Just enter the title in Google Scholar and look for the "Cited By" link.
OneSearch searches multiple resources at once. It can be an avalanche of material that doesn't allow you to easily see connections, conversations.Use only for very precise searches:
Finding full text of a citation
Finding material on a narrow, specialized topic or little written-about person
Finding book chapters about a specific author or work
Finding book reviews
Use limiters and drop-downs in Advanced Search to focus your search!
