Q. How do I find social work articles?

Where do I go to find peer-reviewed journal articles in the field of social work? 


Answer

To find Peer Reviewed Journal articles, your best bet is to choose one of the many Academic Databases that Walla Walla University Subscribes to. If you visit our A to Z list of Databases you have the option to limit databases by a number of different filters, including subject. 

To find a good database for social work, you can limit to the subject area 'social work', and from there you can limit again to type 'article' or you can look at the Best Bets, which are always chosen in regards to the databases that are most likely to provide peer-reviewed literature in a subject area. 

Once you enter a database, you can use your keywords for your topic to search for articles. You may additionally want to limit by things like date, full text availability, scholarly journals, and so forth. 

If you ever have a difficult time finding articles in a particular topic please contact the librarians in the Center for Library Education And Research (CLEAR) at reference@wallawalla.edu.
