Peace Studies


Here are some online reference resources.

Academic Search Premier

Academic Search Premier is a multi-disciplinary database of magazines and peer-reviewed journals including many full text articles.  Because of this broad coverage, ASP is highly recommended for research in peace studies. 

  • Content is added daily although some publishers withhold new articles during an "embargo" period of several months.
  • Try limiting searches to "scholarly journals".
  • To view most recent articles first, change the sort from "Relevance" to "Date Descending".
  • Use the   link to request articles from another library when full text is not available.


1. Use * to include multiple word endings.
Example: christian* will include results for christian, christians and christianity.
2. Use quotation marks to search for words together as a phrase.
Example: "Martin Luther King" will limit results to the 20th century American leader.

Paid E-book sites
