Tracking Down Research Referenced in a Popular Article

Once you've found your popular source, look at the keywords they use to describe the research, study, program, or researchers they reference. Use these keywords to search the sources listed in the box below this one. 

For example, this article quotes an author and gives a date for the report she wrote about her study. We can enter that information in Temple Library's advanced articles search, which would look like this:
