This guide will provide you with resources to complete your assignments for this course as well as for your future profession

Be Aware of Preprints

Preprints can provide some of the latest information on a topic. However, they are preliminary reports of work that have not yet been peer reviewed. You will encounter preprints in some of our databases (and you can filter your search to exclude them) and also in your Google Scholar searches (where they can be hard to identify).

Here are some search tools you can use to find preprints.

Finding Journal Articles

See other subject guides in medical areas or other topics such as biology, education, psychology, etc. for more specialized indexes & databases.

Is this journal peer-reviewed? Is this a trade magazine?

Ulrich's International Periodicals Directory can help you answer these questions.  Simply search the journal title to determine if it is peer reviewed/refereed (look for the tiny referee shirt). Ulrich's will also tell you if the title is a trade magazine or journal.
