This guide is an old, somewhat outdated one :-( If you are currently in Crim J 311 you will probably find the resources on the main Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Guide more up-to-date and expansive:
(However...this one is actually not bad for research process stuff, but I'd suggest using Sage Research Methods - linked at the Research Guide above)
JSTOR - we have continuing access to ALL of JSTOR's journal content (including the Security Studies and Sustainability thematic collections)! This was originally set to end in June 2023, but has been extended as a permanent subscription.
This Course Guide is intended for students who are taking Crim J 311, Undergraduate Research Methods in Criminal Justice (or other online undergraduate research methods classes) through WSU's Global Campus - or in person!. It includes links (and soon, short/shortish lecture screencasts) that will help you learn about finding and using library resources for research at WSU, including finding scholarly books and articles that you can use in a research proposal literature review and elsewhere.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me - my contact information is at the bottom of this page. If you would like more/different information, or are not understanding what/how I write, please tell me so I can make it better! Further options for assistance are available on the Services for WSU Online Students tab.

I work with the criminal justice, political science, sociology, and sport studies departments. I also am the Government Information librarian, and I work with social science data (I'm the ICPSR Official Representative for WSU), and I *also* teach technology classes (the reference management application Zotero, personal information management tools, digital privacy, creating basic ebooks) - email me if you are interested in setting up an online workshop for a group!
Watch this space on each of the tabs of this CRM J 311 Course Guide and follow the instructions.
