Research guide for sociological topics.

What are scholarly or peer-reviewed journal articles?

Many sources you will find when conducting college-level library research are scholarly articles, often called "peer-reviewed," or "academic."

The tutorials below explain the typical appearance, structure, and function of scholarly articles.

Scholarly Article Databases

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.
