Focus on Peer Reviewed Articles

Databases are really great when you want to find something specific to your discipline, or you want to be sure that you are getting the best resources available. These are your best bets for political science and middle eastern studies.

Here are tips for using databases:

  • Remember that if you are off-grounds when you want to access these databases, be sure to go through a library website so you are prompted for your NetBadge computing ID.  You will then be able to view the articles without having to pay for them.
  • Use the the "Find @ UVA" button to get the full text.
  • Limit your search results to "peer-reviewed" articles to get articles evaluated by experts.
