SYG 2000 - Mellan (Plant City): Journal Articles

This guide has the information needed to complete the journal article analysis project in Dr. Mellan's Sociology class.

Finding Journal Articles

To complete this assignment you will need to locate a research article in the realm of sociology. The library has a variety of journals, selected by Dr. Mellan, that are available in print for this assignment.

Family Relations
Journal of Marriage and Family
Journal of Social Issues
Social Forces
Social Policy
Social Problems


If you prefer to search for journal articles online, there are many different databases that you can use for this project.  Databases that I have found to be very useful are listed below.   You will need to be signed into HCC Libraries Online in order to access the articles through this database.  If you are not sure how to log in, please see the Logging into HCC Libraries page on this LibGuide.

**When using these databases, it is important to search for a topic that is in the realm of sociology.  You must also pay attention to the journal that the article appears in.  I prefer to do a journal specific search to ensure that I find articles in journals that Dr. Mellan has recommended.**
