What are kinds of subjects REALLY interest you? Think about topics, or subjects : places, things, situations, etc., that you care about, or really enjoy, or social issues,  and pull some keywords from these topics.

Since your instructor is asking you to find peer-review articles, you need to go to a general database such as OneSearch , and enter the topic idea you have or keywords related to your topic in the search boxes. Once you get the results of your search, look to the left side bar: choose and click the "Limit To" checkbox for "Scholarly (Peer review) Journals."


You may want to look through the list:  A-Z Databases and get subject ideas from the areas of health, social justice, environment, etc. Many of the databases focus in topic areas--like Criminal behavior, Health, Social and Gender issues.

FINALLY: If you still struggle after 30 mins., find a librarian: we can help you get going and find the sources you need! Contact us in person at the Reference Desk, through email:, text at 570-431-9918 or through the Ask Us! chat on LHU libraries homepage.
