Browse Journals

Browsing scholarly journals can be a helpful way to find a topic. Consider browsing TESOL or Education journals.

Recommended Databases

Depending on your topic, you will want to explore different databases. Multi-disciplinary databases are a good starting place for interdisciplinary topics. 

Start with subject-specific databases if your topic is associated with a discipline like theology, sociology, or education. Below are some examples. You can find more subject-specific databases on the library home page under the database tab.  Select search by discipline.

Using Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a great way to find scholarly articles or book citations.  After searching, look for features in your results that can help you find related articles:

  • The Cited By feature will show you who cited an article so you can follow the citation trail. 
  • Click Related Articles to find other articles on topic.
