This guide was put together with the goal of helping students in Dr. Kristina Keating's Spring 2022 Applied Geophysics course get started with finding peer-reviewed original research articles for their mini-scientific paper assignment.  It is intended to complement and supplement the March 21, 2022 library research instruction session.

By no means is this an exhaustive guide to doing research, so if you have any questions, please get in touch with Bonnie Fong ( or Ask-A-Librarian

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the March 21, 2022 library research session for Dr. Keating's Applied Geophysics class, students will be able to:

  • distinguish original research articles from other types of articles
  • identify the different methods to access the full-text of an article
  • create APA style citations for journal articles
