Finding Scholarly Articles

Before conducting your search:
  • Consider how your argument might be broken down into keywords or phrases.
  • Compile a list of synonyms for those keywords.  What other terms might scholars use to talk about your topic, and how do these terms reflect the type of argument scholars are making?  (E.g., insurgency vs. rebellion)
  • Consider which intersections among your keywords will be useful for searching
  • Identify disciplines that are relevant to your research question.  Also consider the ways in which your question might reside outside traditional disciplines or cut across them.
See the Search Tips tab for additional information.

Searching for Articles

Begin your search with the relevant subject-specific databases below.  If you are having trouble identifying sources through these databases, try one of the multidisciplinary ones to the right.  To identify subject-specific databases not listed below, use Research Guides.

Once you have found relevant resources, use the button to get full-text copies the articles.

A separate window will open with links either to a digital copy of the article, a locally available print copy, or an Article Delivery request form for ordering material not held by the tri-college libraries.
