Global Studies

This is a selected list of resources for starting research in Global Studies. While the emphasis of this guide is on international development, the resources may be of use for many topics.

Review Articles

Review articles (or literature reviews) are a great way to get an overview of a research area, with many references to scholarly and research articles. Review articles undergo peer-review and thus qualify as scholarly articles.

The Annual Review journals are a good source of review articles. Web of Science (see middle column) is also good: do your search and then limit your results to reviews on the left side.

Finding articles

To look for articles in journals, newspapers, or magazines, you will need to start with a database. An database will allow you to look by subject or a few keywords which describe your topic or by author.
