Web of Science Core Collection (was Social Science Citation Index) is a comprehensive index of the top scholarly research journals in the social sciences. It does NOT directly provide full text of journal articles, but the LinkSource button (listed under Full Text) will search other databases and the catalog for full-text copies of the article. If the Library does not have full text copies of the article available, you can access Inter-Library Loan (ILL) through LinkSource. The advantage of this database is that it provides the number of times an author or an article has been cited in other journal articles.

Finding Peer-Reviewed Articles
What does "peer reviewed" mean?
A peer reviewed article is reviewed by subject experts before being approved for publication in order to ensure that it meets specific criteria and standards. Journals that use peer review in their selection process are generally considered to be of higher quality and more trustworthy than those that don’t use the peer review process.
How do I find peer reviewed articles?
You can find peer reviewed articles by searching our databases. Most databases give you the option to select for peer reviewed articles when conducting your search. Check the "Peer Reviewed" box to ensure all the articles in your search results come from peer reviewed journals.
From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, and other sources. Google Scholar provides links to Dupre Library to check for availability.
