The four most common sources of information are books, journals, databases, and dissertations and theses.

Book- can be physical or online. Books are good sources of background information, however books are not as current as journal articles.

Journal- Source of scholarly peer reviewed articles, reviews, papers, research reports, or technical reports. Journals contain the most current information in a field. Journal can be searched individually or in a database.

Database- A searchable collection of many journal articles, book chapters, newspaper articles, and other types of information. Great source to go in depth on a specific discipline.

Dissertations and Theses- Terminal projects of advanced degrees, representing years of research. Must be reviewed by a committee of faculty members before a degree is awarded. Often dissertations and theses are not published or contain more details than journal article.
