Much of your research will be done through our subscription databases - resources that you have access to while a student at Stony Brook. To access them from off campus, you'll be asked to enter your NetID and password.
Each database will search a specific collection of published articles ranging from peer reviewed journals, magazines, and newspapers. Some basic tips as you get started:
Looking for empirical research? These are studies that rely on data collected through experimentation and direct observation. Keep in mind that not all peer reviewed articles will necessarily be empirical research.
While some databases have a direct way to limit results to empirical research, there are also search tips that will help you find these types of articles regardless.
