Baltimore & Maryland Research: Getting Started

Baltimore-Related Scholarly Journal Articles: Tips

It can be challenging to find scholarly (peer-reviewed) journal articles on a topic related to a specific location. Tips:

  • Generalize the location
    • Instead of Baltimore, try searching for "urban" or "cities"
  • If you're researching a specific organization, broaden it to organization TYPE
    • Instead of the organization Beans & Bread, try searching for "soup kitchens" or "food pantries"
