US History Pathfinder 2017 – Journal Articles


Journal Articles

Journal articles are published in academic journals, are peer-reviewed, make an argument and cite their sources.  Journal articles are especially helpful for finding information about a narrow topic, reading a scholar’s arguments, getting an overview of several scholars’ arguments about a topic and finding more resources on a topic.
