Communication Disorders

Find and cite journal articles and books in the field of communication disorders, and/or set up an individual research session with a librarian.

Peer-reviewed sources

How do I know if an article or  journal is peer-reviewed:

  1. Limit a database to peer reviewed, scholarly journals, or refereed journals before beginning a search, or apply it as a limiter when you get the results of your search. You can do this in Southernsearch, any Ebsco database, and most Proquest databases.
  2. Check Ulrich’s International Periodicals Directory
  3. Check the submission guidelines at the journal’s official website.

Requesting articles

If you find an article in Google Scholar that you can't access, you can email me the COMPLETE CITATION

It is vital that you send the COMPLETE CITATION.

I will recheck access and if the article isn't available through Buley, I'll either request it for you (it's free for you!) or direct you to our fantastic Interlibrary Loan service.
