When locating scholarly research and data, it is best to start with the resources below instead of going directly to Google. You will save time by not having to sift through different types of information to find  what you need, and you will be able to tell quickly whether or not the information is reliable and trustworthy. 

Using Google Scholar

Google Scholar is an excellent tool for locating scholarly research and scientific data from a variety of sources. It also searches for articles in JSTOR. Some of the articles from other sources you might not be able to read from the link in Google Scholar (since they are pay to read sites) but you might be able to find the article in one of our other databases. 

Use the link below to access Google Scholar, and try different keywords to find what you need.
