    Suggestions for research

    I'm reading a book called The American Paradox for my political science class. I've got an 8 page paper (double spaced, no sweat) due on the 20th that basically critiques the views and opinions of the author, I also need to mix in my own opinions that can be backed up with facts. And of course, I must have 5 resources.

    Except these resources can not be from a glossy magazine, they must be from official journals that have been pier-reviewed. Where is the best place online to find something like this?

    Nicky I'm sure you know something...

    Is this the book you are speaking of?

    The American Paradox:
    Spiritual Hunger in an Age of Plenty

    Or is it that book on Eugene Debs?


    The best resource for peer-reviewed journals will be your college library. I would recommend going directly to the research librarian and asking. Also, you can use the library's electronic/online catalogue.

    As far as online journals, it sounds like you would have to have a subscription in many cases to get access to them. But you can get access through your school.

    There are thousands and thousands of peer reviewd journals. don't forget you can include conferences in that as conference proceedings are normally peer reviewed too.

    Here are some references which might be useful (although your library is a good idea!):

    ~ http://www.psqonline.org/
    ~ http://www.bgsu.edu/offices/sppc/journal.htm
    ~ http://www.democracynature.org/dn/index.htm

    If you are unsure about whether the journal is a good one or not then check the publisher. A good academic publisher will normaly produce quality journals. People like Cambridge Press, Pearsons, Springler, Yale University Press, John Wiley and Sons etc. etc.

    Of course political science is not really my field.
