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
Indentify disciplines that are relevant to your research question. Also consider the ways in which your question might reside outside traditional discplines or cut across them.
