Read your assignment carefully. Questions? Ask! Get started by selecting a topic and finding research requirements for this assignment (at least four scholarly sources relating directly to the regime outcome.)
Type your search e.g. "weimar republic" or poland and democracy. Use limiters (which will appear on the side of the screen beside your results), such as online, format, or subject, to focus your results.
Review your course readings and select any required readings relevant to your topic. Check the bibliographies of any relevant readings for more sources on your topic. Search for these sources through the "LibrarySearch" on the UTSC Library website.
Some databases allow you to limit your search to peer-reviewed journals. For other databases, 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. (e.g. Journal of Infections Diseases)
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.
