Getting Started and Resources for Political Philosophy
Sources For Your Assignment
The two best places to find academic sources (i.e. peer reviewed articles in journal or scholarly books) for your final paper are Philosopher's Index and PhilPapers. While Philosopher's Index is a more traditional database with wider breadth and traditional keyword searching PhilPapers is a more specialized database curated by philosophers that is excellent for exploring topics. Your professor wants you to use these two database in philosophy, but I've included other databases in case you want to explore supplemental sources in topics other than philosophy. I've also included background sources such as the the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. For a fuller offering of more databases, explore other research guides, a selection of which are below.
