Although it is possible to find scholarly journal articles through PITTCat+ searches, it is often more efficient to pick a subject specific database for your research. Databases allow you to readily customize your searches to retrieve journal articles.

Instructors often ask students to find “scholarly”, “academic”, or “peer reviewed” sources of information for their research. These terms all refer to the same type of information – sources based on in-depth research, and are considered higher in quality and more reliable for your research. These sources can range from chapters within books or entire books, or journal articles, but all have common characteristics that can help you recognize that type of information.
