A guide on getting started with history research, where to look, and recommended resources.

Journals & Articles

Articles written in journals help to give you context of a historical event or time period. These are typically written by scholars in the field for other scholars in the field, and can often use field-specific terminology. Academic journals are peer reviewed, which means the articles you see published in them went through a vetting process by peers in the field to check facts and sources, which can help when you're evaluating sources for your own research. Here you'll find a list of history-specific journals and journal databases to find scholarly articles.

Current Newspapers

Here are links to find contemporary news articles. These can be helpful to determine how a current event is being analyzed. For historical newspaper articles, see the Primary Sources tab. For major popular newspapers, see our Newspapers guide.
