Education: Articles

Find scholarly resources in education

Education Databases

Why use a database?

  • Find published articles from newspapers, magazines, and journals,
  • Find educational reports, chapters from books, and more
  • Locate peer reviewed articles 
  • Use advanced searching tools 
  • Discover materials that are NOT on the web
  • Get formatted citations 

This short video from North Carolina State University explains the peer review process and its purpose.

Scholarly articles have unique characteristics that distinguish them from popular magazine articles. Some of these characteristics include:

  • Length - scholarly articles are longer, usually over 10 pages. This is because they discuss previous research, present new research or make new arguments, and draw conclusions.
  • Authors - scholarly articles are often written by professors or professionals in a field.
  • Language - scholarly articles use technical language, or jargon, relevant to the field.
  • References - readers will always find a thorough bibiliography at the end of a scholarly article.

Inter-library Loan (ILL)

We can get what you need from another Library! Just ask.

If you need the full text of an article that is not available or a book or chapter, contact your Librarian. Articles can be requested from other Libraries at no cost. Send the citation information to your Librarian mhm@sa.edu or place a request directly through WorldCat.

 

ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center)

The Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) is an internet-based digital library of education research and information sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education. Note: Many of the articles found in ERIC are not full text.

Google Scholar can be a helpful tool when you are not finding what you want in databses. It searches for scholarly literature across the Internet and can find some limited open access journal articles and digital books.

BE AWARE: Many of the results you find will not be free and many will not be full text. Searching tools are limited as well so your results may not be relevant to your needs. Try using the advanced search in Google Scholar and these Advanced Search Tips.

If you find an journal article you need that does not have free full text, contact the Librarian with the information (mhm@sa.edu).
