Research Tools

Opposing Viewpoints in Context - Use the "Browse Issues" option to get ideas for what to research. It will provide you with a list of sources like magazine & newspaper articles, opinion pieces, statistics, and more.

Academic Search Complete - Use this once you have a topic picked out. It has a lot of full-text articles and a tool for creating citations in MLA or APA Style. Click "Choose Databases" and add in databases like Environment Complete, Consumer Health Complete, ERIC (Education), and others.

Finding Government Websites

Government websites are great for topics in public health because they are authoritative and non-commercial in origin. Limit your Google search to federal and state government websites by adding site:.GOV after your topic. See the example below.

Citation Help

You should use whichever citation style is most familiar to you. Here are some links the Purdue OWL website for APA and MLA Style.

APA Style

MLA Style

zoterobib - Use this tool to create citations to websits. It's relatively accurate and free of advertising.
