If you don’t know what types of services your school subscribes to, ask your teacher/librarian about them.
Another great way to access academic papers is Google Scholar.
Google Scholar also has link under each posting to help you find related articles.
Microsoft has a competitor to Google Scholar that is very similar, Microsoft Academic Search.
Most schools/universities have a subscription to a large database of academic journals.
Some commonly used databases are JSTOR and EBSCO Host.
Second, the journal editors will send the submission to other scholars who do similar work and who are qualified to review the article.
Generally, editors will send submissions to be reviewed by three other scholars.
It is a search tool that finds scholarly articles–academic journals, patents, theses, court proceedings, and more.
Google Scholar displays how many times an academic piece of literature was cited, which is a rough numerical indicator of how influential the research was.
