International Education (IB)

A library guide to support students enrolled in IB program subjects.

Finding Journal Articles

When you need to locate articles about a specific topic for your assessment tasks, we suggest that you search within the databases as they index the contents of thousands of journals.

Try your search strategies in some of the databases we recommend for IB Diploma students 

 Teacher Education and Educational Research Journal Titles

The library subscribes to a large number of journals in all areas of education. Journals titles may be aligned with different information needs such as research, study or professional development. 

For some topics, be prepared to think laterally and consider general education journals in the areas of cognition, teaching methods, learning styles and educational psychology.

Find more titles by searching or browsing the A-Z ejournals and databases list

What is a scholarly peer reviewed journal?

Scholarly Journals

  • Contain articles written by and addressed to experts in a discipline.
  • Report original research or experimentation.
  • Cite their sources in footnotes or bibliographies.

Peer-reviewed (or refereed) journals

  • Only publish articles that have passed through a review process, and have been approved by scholars or experts.
  • Many databases provided the option to limit your search results to peer-reviewed titles

Tip: You can use the UlrichsWeb : global serials directory to check if a journal is peer-reviewed.

  1. Search for the journal (use the title-exact search)

  2. If it is peer-reviewed, the soccer referee T-shirt icon will display next to the journal name.
