Locating Articles by Journal Title

  • Journal Finder

  • Zotero
    Keep track of your citations and produce bibliographies with the simple click of a button. Download the software here at

Useful Databases

  • Google Scholar
    Explore a myriad of resources within the field of math and related areas.
    Deep historic coverage of math topics in top scholarly journals.
  • ERIC (Education Resources)
    Use this tool to explore education-related math journals, like Mathematics Teacher.
  • Academic Search Premier
    Nearly everyone can find information on their topic in this tool. Use Limits to narrow by date, source type, and scholarly/popular.
  • Statista
    Highlights the most recent and relevant statistics and quantitative research on a wide array of topics.

Boolean Operators & Examples

Use these term connectors in Library tool searches

  • AND
    This will narrow your search to include all terms that are connected with AND.

    "student engagement" AND leadership

    requires that both terms be present in the title, abstract, or keywords of a citation.
  • OR
    This broadens your search to include more options based on your search terms.

    (college OR university) AND "student housing"

    insists that either the term college or the term university must be present along with the phrase "student housing" in the title, abstract, or keywords assigned to a citation.
  • NOT
    This excludes a term from a search and thus helps you narrow your search results. You may find that a search on (student AND vulnerability) brings up too many citations related to physical vulnerability.

    You could add to the search NOT physical, to exclude articles focusing on that one aspect of the concept of vulnerability.

    (student AND vulnerability) NOT physical
