Finding Scholarly Articles

Using the following databases will help you find citations to articles from scholarly journals. When using a database, limit your search to "peer reviewed" and/or "scholarly journals", if possible, so that your search results will include only citations from scholarly journals. Most databases allow you to limit your results to scholarly journals. Some databases such as Anthropology Plus and JSTOR are made up entirely of scholarly journals, so limiting your search is not necessary.

Do a keyword search in one of the databases below. Examples of keyword search statements:

           stress and culture
           (stress or trauma) and cultur*

           grief and papua new guinea
           (grief or bereavement or sorrow) and papua new guinea
           samo* and temperament
           spatial orientation or wayfinding
           dream* and (cross-cultural or cultural differences)
           culture-bound and (illness* or disease* or syndrome*)

Verifying Articles are from Scholarly Journals

If you are wondering about a specific journal, use the  database to confirm that a journal is refereed (scholarly) by looking up a journal and checking for Refereed icon   (Refereed).
