Off-campus access to research databases is restricted to current CSU faculty, staff, and students.
To access research databases from off-campus, you will have to authenticate first -- select Cleveland State University, and then enter your name, CSU ID, and Library PIN. If you don't have a Library PIN yet, then you can create one on the My Account page.
A peer-reviewed (or refereed) journal is one in which the process to determine if an article will be accepted for publication is done by professional colleagues, or peers.
If an article is not available full text in the database you are searching, then click on the Find It! link.
This brings up the OLinks screen.
If the article is available full text online in another research database, then OLinks will connect you to it.
If the article is available in paper format in a print journal located on the 4th floor of the Michael Schwartz Library, then OLinks will provide that information.
To find peer-reviewed journal articles on a topic, search in one of the Education Research Databases listed below.
Research Databases contain citations or references to articles published in various journals, magazines, and newspapers.
Many of the Research Databases also contain the full text of articles, either in HTML or PDF format. You can read the articles online, print them out, email them, or save them to your USB.
Make sure to LIMIT your results to Peer-Reviewed Journals when searching for articles in the Research Databases if your professor requires them!
