Finding a research article

Use the NCCC Library Homepage to access "All Library Databases" or access them through links in the box to the right. 

The databases will let you limit to a "scholarly" or "peer reviewed" article, which is one of the requirements for your assignment. Some databases will let you limit to a publication type, "Research."  You may also limit to a particular source, for example, American Journal of Public Health.  There are several titles listed under "Research Assignment Guidelines" that you received from your instructor.  And finally, you may limit by publication date in order to retrieve only articles published between 2004 and 2018.

1.  Title page

2.  Abstract

3.  Introduction

4.  Method

5.  Subjects
