Q. I am looking for primary source peer reviewed articles about vocational education in today's high school.

I am looking for primary source peer reviewed article about vocational education in today's high school. I am also looking for an article with the same criteria regarding group intelligence tests in education. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Answer

Dear Billie

I would start with Education Research Complete, which is an EBSCO database.

For your first topic, enter the terms below in the search boxes (on the left), and using the drop-down boxes, select the limiter shown in the boxes on the right.

vocational education         SU Subject

high school                      SU Subject

study                              AB Abstract or Author supplied abstract        

Before you hit the SEARCH button, look in the SEARCH OPTIONS section below and check the box next to SCHOLARLY (PEER REVIEWED) JOURNALS.  

This search will return results for articles on high school vocational education, and the word "study" should help limit to research studies (primary research). Many articles are  international in scope. Much of the scholarly writing on this topic appears to be written by authors outside the USA.

In the same database, you can do a new search for your second topic. I would start by setting it up this way:

intelligence tests            SU Subject

research                        SU Subject

and check the box for scholarly/peer reviewed journals in the lower section of the search screen.

If you have questions or  want more support, please feel free to write back, or call the reference desk at 617-333-2167.  or you could sign up for an appointment- click on the Sign up in Advance link on this page:

I hope this is helpful; best of luck with your research.
