Search with descriptive words (i.e., keywords) about your topic in a relevant research database (e.g., Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, etc.), and include limiters for articles, peer-reviewed journals, etc. Find recommended databases for specific disciplines in the library's research guides or in Databases A-Z.

If you use OneSearch, refine your results by adding a limiter for scholarly & peer-review and/or a desired content type (journal article and newspaper article shown below; magazine article also a choice under "more").

For help constructing a search statement with connectors or logical operators (AND, OR), see the "Keys to Finding..." link below. If you're not finding what you need, please consult a research librarian.
