Your instructor may have asked you to use scholarly articles for your assignment. A scholarly article is simply an article published in a journal run by scholars, which has undergone the process of peer-review (where other scholars review the information before it can be published).
You can find scholarly articles by using our library databases. Not sure which to use? Use the options provided on the database list to narrow down by subject.
Academic Search Complete is always a great database to start with, because it collects articles in every scholarly area. But always check out other databases as well, because they might have that perfect article.
To search a database, use the same keywords you created in step 2. Most databases, like Academic Search Complete, will have options on the left-hand side of the page to narrow down your results to a much manageable number of articles.
Once you've completed this, it's time for Step 5: Evaluate Your Sources.
