Finding Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles


Search Tips:

  • Put phrases into quotation marks, like "attachment stability" or "public assistance"
  • Try synonyms to bring back different results.  "child care" "public assistance" will bring back different sources than "child care" SNAP.
  • Use "Content Type" in the middle of the left-hand column to limit your results to books, newspaper articles, etc.
  • Use "Scholarly & Peer-Review" at the top of the left-hand column if you want only scholarly journal articles.
