Exploring Secondary Sources

The following sources offer credible, secondary coverage of topics in various scientific disciplines. If you find a useful article, check to see if there are links to primary literature. Make a list of key terms and ideas as you read.

To begin, explore the prior student projects for inspiration regarding global environmental science topics you can apply to campus. 

Resources for Primary Sources

The following databases and academic search engines contain full-text access to hundreds of thousands of research studies, literature reviews, and reports. If you find a citation but are unsure if you can access the whole article, use the e-journals portal to search for the name of the journal and check to see that your article was published within the covered dates.
