How to find Journals and Articles

Research is communicated mainly through journal articles. These articles should be peer-reviewed and recently published.

Once you've found a few articles of interest, a great way to find even more relevant sources is by looking for related citations. Databases like Scopus and PubMed provide tools on the results page to help you do this.
