Article Indexes for History

A great place to start your research is with an index.  For instance, the Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature in print is a great place to get information on a variety of topics.  The Reader's Guide can be found in the Reference Collection under AI3 .R48 c. 2.  Below are electronic indexes available through our databases.

Is it peer-reviewed?

Need to find out if a journal is peer-reviewed? 

Look at the journal's submission guidelines or consult Ulrich's Periodicals Directory.  Search for your journal by title and look for the column icon indicating that it's refereed (i.e. peer-reviewed).
