Many professors will require that you focus on the scholarly journal literature as you conduct your research. Depending on the assignment, other professors may not have this requirement. However, it is important to be able to discern the scholarly, peer-reviewed journal literature from other types of periodical literature.
Here is a short list of recommended databases to help get you started on finding scholarly journal articles on natural resources-related topics.
For a more complete list of databases to help you locate journal articles in the areas of natural resources/ environment, go to:
