Summon is a discovery search tool that you can use to begin your research or to find additional resources. Summon does not search everything the library has access to; it should not be used exclusively. It can, however, be a valuable additional resource.
Use the customized Summon search box below to search for scholarly journal articles in Women's Studies.
Almost all of the library's databases will allow you to limit to academic/scholarly, or peer-reviewed journals. Limiting to academic/scholarly, however, is imperfect: You'll also retrieve professional journals. Some professors consider these scholarly; others don't.
Ask to clarify.
How can you tell what it is you found? You'll need to look for clues. None of these clues may be consistently applied--taken together, however, they can get you close.
Still unsure? Check Ulrich's Periodicals Directory for the definitive word on whether your source is scholarly or general.
