There are teaching journals grounded in specific discplines that may be of interest to you while you formulate your research topic and determine the originality of your research question.
See the following subpages for the titles of some discipline-specific teaching journals:
The Library subscribes many journals, but even when we don't subscribe to something we can still provide you with access.
To get access to journal content we do not subscribe to, submit a request form through the Interlibrary Loan service. Login to the ILL system here. Once you are logged in, click on the Blank Request Form in the left hand menu and fill out the information you have for the journal article.
To get online access to this content, leave the pickup location at the default "email link - copies only".
Databases can be a great place to conduct a review of the relevant literature, and to see the information available on your topic in several journals at once. ERIC is the database that focuses on teaching literature.
The ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) database is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education to provide extensive access to educational-related literature.
