Secondary Sources

Full-Text Databases

Journal articles are an excellent way to start your research.  They are narrow in focus and they contain references to other sources – both secondary and primary.  Unless you have a citation to a particular article, it’s best to start with an index.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar contains links to scholarly articles, theses and books in many  disciplines.  Full text is also available for many of the links.


What Are Secondary Sources?

Secondary sources are finding tools that interpret legal topics.  They cannot be cited in most legal writing, but their importance lies in the fact that these sources explain and define areas of the law with textual analysis and introductions to basic resources.  They are also good for informative footnotes and citations to primary sources.  There are a number of types of secondary sources, but for researching such topics as Counseling and Negtiation, treatises, articles and reports are important.
