Journalism-to-Peer-Reviewed Strategy

Planting seeds

 

Search magazines and newspapers for articles about your research topic. This will help you find out what important research has been selected by journalists to share with a general audience. 

Read relevant articles to identify the peer-reviewed research reported in the article. Search for it on the library website to find the original research article you can then use and cite in your project. 

Example: Reading the New York Times article Some Monarch Butterfly Populations Are Rising. Is It Enough to Save Them? leads you to the peer-reviewed journal article Opposing global change drivers counterbalance trends in breeding North American monarch butterflies in Global Change Biology.
