Tracking Scholarship

This guide points to many sources for book reviews.  Also, the databases for finding scholarly articles often also identify reviews in those journals.

H-Net Reviews is a good source for scholarly reviews.

In addition, the Web of Science (don't let the name fool you) allows you to track articles as they are cited through time and also identify book reviews.


New Research

You can set up new search alerts in many journal databases to receive updated news of research on your topic.  Here's a training video to do this for EBSCO databases, such as ATLA Religion Database.

You can also set up an RSS feed from our online catalog for new books on your topic.

Finding Scholarly Articles

First, you want to know the different types of periodical articles.

These databases are starting points for finding journal articles for your topics.  

  • ATLA Religion Database Major index to journal articles, book reviews, and essay collections in the field of religion.
  • AnthroSource Current issues for 15 of the AAA's most critical peer-reviewed publications and and complete web archives of all AAA journals.
  • Anthropology PlusProvides indexing for the fields of social, cultural, physical, biological and linguistic anthropology.
  • Bibliography of Asian Studies. Citations to articles published worldwide from 1971 for East, Southeast and South Asia.
  • Middle East and Central Asian Studies. Provides information about the nations and peoples of the Middle East, Central Asia, and North Africa.

We have additional databases in Religious Studies and Anthropology, as well as hundreds covering other fields.


Finding Books

One good strategy when you are searching the library catalog is to begin with a simple keyword search to identify one or more relevant books. Once you have located a relevant item, you can look at the item's Library of Congress Subject Headings within the item's full record tab and follow the subject heading links in the catalog to find other, similar or related books.

You can also refine your results by using the facets on the left side of the screen.
