Activity 6: Finding Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles
Peer-reviewed journal articles are important in academic research, and you need to be able to search for and find relevant articles, using TRU Library. Articles in peer-reviewed journals are reviewed by a group of other experts in the field before an article is published to determine if the article falls within the scope of the publication and to examine its originality, quality of research, clarity of presentation, etc. Academic research requires the use of reputable or “authoritative” sources, and the peer review process is a primary method to measure research quality. The TRU Library’s article databases can help you locate peer-reviewed articles on a wide variety of topics.
View the following tutorial, developed by the TRU Library: “Define a Topic/Plan a Search”.
You can also use the guides on “ Finding Articles” as a resource for information and tips, including how to determine if an article is peer-reviewed .
Use the Psychology Subject Guide to find out which databases are recommended for research in psychology and to access the database.
View the following video “ Searching Article Databases”.
Also, go to the accompanying guide on the Library website to help you become a more efficient and effective database searcher.
Using the above tools/search guides, now find an article on resilience in one of the TRU Library article databases that you might be interested in. In the article database, put the word “resilience” in the first search box because that is your main keyword. The next step is to determine what aspect of resilience interests you to help narrow your topic. You may want to focus on a particular group of people, such as teenagers, teachers, university students, seniors, immigrants, etc. Or, perhaps you are interested in the concept of resilience after a certain event, such as child abuse, trauma, marriage, childbirth, divorce, etc. Add this second keyword to the second search box in the article database and run your search. If you still have too many results, add a third aspect relating to resilience to further narrow or “focus” your search even more.
