Finding Articles

                                            

A good starting point for scholarly journal articles on your research topic is Academic Search Premier.

For journal articles in Kinesiology, use the most comprehensive database, Physical Education Index.

  • For a more precise search, use the online thesaurus for vocabulary to represent the concepts of your research topic.
  • Place each unique concept in a separate row. Use AND to connect concepts (for example, exercise AND lifestyle changes). Both concepts will be present in your results.
  • Limit your results to peer reviewed for abstracts from scholarly publications.

For journal articles on topics in health and medicine, use CINAHL Plus with Full Text.

Search ERIC for journal articles and non-journal literature in education.

For journal articles on topics in sociology, use Social Sciences Full Text or Sociological Abstracts.

For research on controversial topics, CQ Researcher provides a weekly report on a key national issue including a pro/con section.
