When you need scholarly journal articles on a topic, use a journal article database to find them.
It's important to remember that the quality of sources and your engagement with the articles matter more than the quantity of articles you find. Evaluation is a key step. Ask yourself: is the author of this article a political scientist (or a scholar from another field)? Is this article published by a scholarly journal? Which journal? (The journal title may be listed under "source" or "publication.")
