Research Tools

The intent of this research guide is to provide guidance on how to find scholarly research materials on the topic of Virology.

Research databases are the best places to search for both original research articles and review articles because they index the most important journals in a particular area. (Original research is presented in scholarly or peer-reviewed journals; review articles summarize the research that has been done in a particular area over time). You can also find scholarly research articles by browsing journals which have a focus on Virology. Quality information can also be found on certain websites. Each tab on this guide provides links or guidance on how to locate reliable sources depending on the tool you're using. 

Your research topic may be complicated and require additional guidance. Please contact me for additional suggestions on locating appropriate sources, evaluating the information you find or citing sources properly. I welcome your questions!
