Tripod Articles is quite extensive, but not comprehensive. Searching in smaller and subject-specific databases can often yield a more manageable and pertinent set of results.

Start here to find articles:

These two databases are important for finding scholarly articles written by historians.  If you are focusing on a US topic, start with America, History and Life. If you are focusing on a non-US topic, start with Historical Abstracts.

In either database, try the "Historical Period From" feature to limit your search results to the years that you are interested in researching.

Here's an easy way to get started using America, History and Life: click on this link (on-campus only) to browse academic (history) journal articles on smoking, tobacco, and cigarettes - be forwarned there are over 2,000. But you can use the limits on the left side of the screen to narrow down your options. For example, view recently published articles or click on "Subject" and then "More" to see some of the smoking-related topics that historians have written about.
