Linguistics: Researching topics in linguistics

Start with background information

Starting with a subject encyclopedia is a great way to learn the main outlines of your topic and help you to focus your research question.

Find articles in scholarly journals

Search these library databases for scholarly articles on topics of interest in the study of linguistics. These are only starting points -- Ask a Librarian if you do not find exactly what you need.

Cite your sources

There are many tools that support managing your own citation database and quickly building bibliographies. UIC Library provides RefWorks for this purpose. For more on RefWorks and other options, see the RefWorks research guide.
