Tips for Locating Scholarly Articles:

  • Use a scholarly database rather than a general database (International Index to Performing Arts vs. Newspaper Abstracts)

  • When available, use search filters to limit to scholarly / peer-reviewed journals when you search your database

  • Check in Ulrichsweb (library database) to see if the journal you want is peer-reviewed
