Many sources found in college-level research are scholarly articles, often called "peer-reviewed," or "academic."
The tutorials below explain the typical appearance, structure, and function of scholarly articles.
The library has many different databases, some are multidisciplinary and some are subject specific (e.g., just covering literature or nursing). Below is a curated list of those most appropriate databases for conducting sociological research.
Some databases are entirely scholarly content while others are a mix of scholarly journals, newspapers, and magazines.
Look for the "Scholarly/Peer Review" box to limit your results to just those types of articles.
