History

Finding Peer-Reviewed Articles in History

Most of your assignments at the UW will require that you include at least some scholarly, peer reviewed articles. Peer review means the articles were read. commented on and corrected by experts before they were published.

In addition to searching for articles in databases specifically related to History, you may wish to try general-interest, interdisciplinary databases as well, like Academic Search Complete, JSTOR and the ProQuest Platform. 

For more detailed information on understanding and using peer-reviewed articles, see the Library's YouTube Channel for a three-part series, Understanding the Scholarly Article:

If you need additional assistance, feel free to email the Librarian for History Michael Dudley at m.dudley@uiwnnipeg.ca.
