Finding Scholarly Sources

UMD subscribes to many databases that index (or include) scholarly articles. Below is a list of databases that may be helpful to you in your research. Not finding what you're looking for? Visit Database Finder --> "Browse Database By Subject" to see a list of databases specific to your subject area. 

Note: Keep in mind that some of these databases include both popular and scholarly sources, so be cautious when reviewing search results. Some databases have filters on the left-hand side of the results list that allow you to narrow down results to scholarly/peer reviewed sources.
