To find scholarly articles or studies, you will need to use a database (not CLIO). Scholarly journals are periodicals in which researchers publish articles on their work. Most often these articles discuss recent research. Journals also publish theoretical discussions and articles that critically review already published work. Scholarly journals are typically peer-reviewed, but not always.
Database best for social work students:
On this page, you will find a lot of options to start your research, but these are not all of the databases that you have access to as a Columbia University student! Explore the other research guides to find other databases for different disciplines, or attend a workshop.
General, interdisciplinary databases:
For all three of these resources you must select the database in EBSCO, by clicking "Choose databases." EBSCO does not automatically apply CINAHL, PsycINFO, or MEDLINE because of limited amounts of users at once.
CINAHL: This is the definitive research tool for nursing and allied health professionals.
PsycINFO: American Psychological Association's resource for behavioral science and mental health resources.
Medline: Created by the National Library of Medicine.
Mental Measurements Yearbook: A comprehensive guide to over 2,700 contemporary testing instruments.
