Read your assignment instruction to determine the sources you should find....
"the sources must include a minimum of five academic sources, i.e. peer-reviewed journal articles and scholarly books (not Wikipedia). A maximum of ONE of these sources can be from course readings (if the topic is applicable).
Find journals recommended by your instructor in the library catalogue.
How do you know if an article is from a peer-reviewed journal? Some databases allow you to limit your search to peer-reviewed journals. For other databases, you need to look up the title of the journal in Ulrich's Directory.
1. Go to Ulrich's: Click to open Ulrich's.
2. Type the JOURNAL TITLE (not the article title) into the search box, and click the green search button. Look for the journal title in your search results.
3. In the search results, look for a referee jersey icon to indicate that a journal is refereed. Refereed means the same as peer reviewed.
4. The Journal of Infectious Diseases is peer reviewed.
REMEMBER: It's the journal that's peer reviewed/refereed, so you are looking for the journal title in your search results, NOT the article title.
Search the Library Catalogue to find books on your topic. Books are available from UTSC Library, other U of T Libraries, and online. Remember: Your T-card is your library card.
Use APA style for this assignment. Have questions about citation? Drop by the reference desk (front desk) in the library or visit the UTSC Writing Centre.
U of T Libraries has a variety of citation management software programs for your use. Please ask if you have any questions.
