Do you agree?

"An article that is going to help you is not one that agrees with what you're saying but one that you have something to say about."

Types of periodicals / articles (including peer-reviewed)

If you are in doubt, ask your professor what kinds of periodicals s/he prefers you to use for the assignment.

Magazines & Newspapers: Called popular periodicals, they are written by staff writers and report current events and news for general readers.

Journals:  Often called scholarly or academic and written by practitioners, theorists & educators, they report experimental and/or theoretical research. Peer-review: Experts in the field may review articles before publication. 

What is an article database?

Article databases are collections of articles in magazines, newspapers, and journals. These databases make it easier to locate articles on your topic because they are collected into one place and provide search functions that are useful for academic research. You can find a list of all the databases that the library subscribes to on the Articles & Databases page on the library website.

You will need to login to Webster Databases using your Connections information.
