Peer reviewed journal articles

For peer-reviewed journal articles, MLA International Bibliography and JSTOR are your two best bets. JSTOR contains a subset of the journals in MLA, but includes them in full text, so the two databases are useful in different ways. MLA is good for finding articles that are categorized as being about your author or work (use the subject search). JSTOR is good for finding mentions of your author or work, regardless of whether the author or work is the central topic of the work of criticism.
