EDL 224: Introduction to Educational Policy: Links to Resources


Welcome to the EDL 224 research guide! This guide is set up to help you with your Policy Brief Assignment. The guide is broken down into databases, journals, writing tips, and policy brief examples. Tutorials are also included to help you get the best use of the guide. 

General Tips: 

  • Be open to searching multiple databases and journals on your topic. 
  • Write down a list of possible search terms on your topic (the more terms you have the better).
  • If you aren't finding the results you want, try out different search terms.
  • If you have any questions or need more help, feel free to email me (found on the "Contact Your Librarian!" tab) or set up a research consultation (click on the box "Schedule Appointment").

Find Databases

Databases are a great resource to search because they provide articles from many journals at the same time.
