Anthropology: Resources

Key Databases in Anthropology

Scholarly Articles

Articles in scholarly/academic journals, especially PEER-REVIEWED journals are particularly important to college research. They:

  • provide in-depth analysis or report original research
  • use in-text citations and bibliographies
  • are written by and for scholars

Look for options in databases to limit your results to articles in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals.

Chicago Citation Style

The Chicago Citation Style has two systems. The Author-Date system is commonly used for Anthropology.
