ENVIR 302: Environmental Communication (Gilbert): Finding Scholarly Articles
How to Search for Articles
You can search the following databases to find scholarly articles on your topic. When searching, you may need to connect your keywords with the AND connector or use separate search boxes for each keyword. For example: "environmental communication" AND greenwashing
If a PDF of an article is not included in a database then click on the purple Check for Full Text button to see if we have the article. If we do not have an online version of the article, you can request a scan of the article. See the FAQ: How do I request a book/article we don't have? for more information.
Be sure to link Google Scholar to the UW Libraries:
1. Click on the 3 lines in the upper left to get to the Google Scholar menu
2. Go to Settings, then "Library Links"
3. Type Washington in the Library Links search box and click 'Find Library' button.
4. Select UW from the list and save preferences.
Is My Journal Peer-Reviewed?
Use the Ulrichsweb database to see if a journal is peer-reviewed. Search for the title of the journal and look for the "Refereed" (Peer-Review) symbol. [UW restricted]
