Use these databases for finding articles on science education.
Use these databases to find subject specific research (not necesarily related to education).
The first step in finding scholarly/ peer reviewed articles for research is
to use a database or index to find citations (including titles)
of articles that are on your topic. Online databases are
listings of articles published in a particular set of journals. Paper
indexes also list articles by subject and title and are updated with
new printings periodically.
Keep in mind that for academic research you want to stick with scholarly articles published in journals like Advances in Nursing Science as opposed to news type articles in magazines like Newsweek. Some databases will even allow you to limit your search to scholarly articles, also called peer-reviewed, juried, or refereed articles, by checking a box.
The top of this page gives quick access to online databases useful for math research.
After you have found citations for articles that seem relevant to your topic, you need to access the articles themselves. You can decide if they are relevant (articles you want) by looking at titles and abstracts (short summaries of the articles) in the database citation.
Getting the article
(Follow these steps until you have the article in hand):
Try the PubMed Single Citation Matcher http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query/static/citmatch.html
Type in your journal title abbreviation and find out what the full title is!
