Find Article on a Topic

If you don't have a specific article already in mind and just need items for your topic, think about: 

  • What kind of information you need on your topic, 
  • Who would write about it,
  • Where those articles would be published. 

Newspapers and popular magazines are good sources for current events and controversies. Scholarly journals publish articles reporting research results or reviewing existing research findings.

Example: You are writing a paper about female college students with eating disorders. You need information about what researchers have found to be the best treatment options, and information on how women deal with having eating disorders.

What you need: Who would write it: Where it would be published:
research findings on treatments of college women with eating disorders Psychologists, health/medical researchers Scholarly journals on psychology or health
Personal stories from women who have suffered form eating disorders Journalists Popular women's magazines or news magazines
