Tips to Finding Articles

  • Look for the Full-Text limiter to retrieve articles that can be read immediately.
  • Look for the Peer-reviewed or Refereed limiter to view articles from scholarly journals.
  • Enter keywords rather than full sentences.
  • Use quotation marks when searching a phrase (2+ words). For example, "women's studies" or "women's rights movement".
  • Use lowercase letters to search both upper and lowercase words.
