Trade journals

Because you're looking at efforts ON CAMPUS, I recommend the following education trade magazines.

Chronicle of Higher Education:

We have a subscription directly to the Chronicle (as it is familiarly called), but I recommend searching using the ProQuest version.  The search engine on the Chronicle's own website is poor.

Best database for trade journal coverage:

A free website:

Key journals

Scholarly article databases

General & multidisciplinary:

Although it has no full-text, Web of Science is perhaps the place to start:  it is broad and multi-disciplinary, covers scholarly literature almost exclusively, and allows the searcher to see citation patterns.  This last item, citation patterns, is important!  This is an important tool for finding out which scholars and which papers are the influential ones.

Google Scholar also has a place in the starting lineup:  although it can often retrieve too much, it is helpful for identifying keywords and terms for searching.  If you're on campus, or using the VPN, it also provides links to full-text content (FindIt@MU links), and links to Web of Science.

The subject-specific databases can be very helpful too, because they will have filters/limits that help you find the most relevant results.
