Ideally, you will be looking at a particular object of study (in this case, a particular conflict) and asking questions about the scholarship already done on that object. You might be disagreeing with the scholarship or you might be furthering an idea already in play. Below are databases where you can find scholarly articles that might be able to use to analyze your object of study.
We have several databases you can use to search for journal, magazine, or newspaper articles. Some of them only give a citation to the article, and some have the full-text.
Here is a list of databases you might want to try to start: (Note: You will be asked to log in with your SU username/password if you are off campus.)
A good way to refine your search is to use the subjects provided by the database. Here is an example of the subjects in Academic Search Ultimate for a search using the keywords <conflict analysis>.
You will only see the top six, so make sure to click on the show more link to see all of the subjects provided. The number next to the subject indicates how many articles in your results set are tagged with that subject term.
For your assignment in this class you are not only limited to international conflict. Your assignment is now all inclusive and can be any kind of conflict.
