Google Scholar is a Google tool that can help you find scholarly information. Just like Google, it's easy to use, but you will get results that are more scholarly.

Google Scholar

Your results will include peer-reviewed articles as well as articles that are not peer-reviewed.

Here is some of what you may find:

  1. Peer-reviewed journal articles
  2. Unpublished scholarly articles
  3. Master's theses and other degree or class work
  4. Citations for books, some of which link to parts of the actual book online.
