Start by using Gale eBooks, which contains specialized encyclopedias and reference books. These are considered academic sources. Pro-tip: do background reading before you attempt to find peer-reviewed research.
As you do your background reading, compile a list of keywords to use for further research, which you'll use when searching the larger articles databases.
When your instructor wants you to use peer-review scholarly/academic articles (which are a type of academic source), try the following databases--but only after you've done some background research first:
- EBSCOhost Video on finding articles in EBSCO
- Gale Databases Video on finding articles in Gale Databases
Be sure to select the checkbox for "peer-reviewed" in the search limiter options.
