USING ARTICLE DATABASES TO LOCATE PEER REVIEWED JOURNAL ARTICLES

Definition of “Peer Reviewed”:
A board of professional researchers or scholars connected to a journal review (or evaluate) submitted articles before before they are published–assessing each article’s research methods, sources and quality.

Locate articles covering your stressors and/or coping strategies by using our article databases.  Look for the magnifying glass icon “articles and more” on the Barber Library webpage OR go directly to these links:

Specific Search Strategies for Databases:

  • Try typing in keywords (use truncation command *to serve as a wild card for plurals and various endings.
  • Try limiting your search to keywords in article titles (use the pull down menu and select titles).
  • Try limiting your search to full text and/or peer reviewed (scholarly, academic) articles.
  • Try using ” ” for phrases (example:  “coping strategy”).

SEARCHING GREY LITERATURE AND WEB RESOURCES:

Definition of “grey literature”:
“Grey literature is authoritative and reputable sources not produced by book or journal publishers.  Grey literature can be print or web-based, and is generated by federal, state and local governments, academic institutions, businesses and industry.  Grey literature includes: government publications, reports, statistics, newsletters, fact sheets, conference proceedings, technical reports, etc.”
