Civilizaciones Precolombinas: Find Articles

Recommended Databases to Find Articles in Scholarly Journals


Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a time-saving, scholarly search interface accessible from within the Google interface. With Google Scholar, you can access peer-reviewed journal articles, books, and book sections. For literature searching, specialized databases have more functionality and access more comprehensive results, but Google Scholar is a good tool.

Database Spotlight

It will not include book reviews, sheet maps, working papers and other gray literature, juvenile literature, newspapers, unpublished manuscripts, and other unpublished materials."
