Theatre & Performance Studies

A overview of the resources available for researchers in the field of Theatre and Performance Studies

INTRODUCTION: HOW TO LOCATE RELEVANT ARTICLES: This list contains databases that are both multidiscipiinary and subject specific.

Limiting to "Peer Reviewed" Articles

"Peer reviewed"  (or "refereed" journals) are those that subject content to a critical review by other experts in the field prior to accepting a manuscript for publication. Thus, limiting your literature search to the peer-reviewed journals ensures a higher level of scholarship and research methodology.  Magazines, trade journals, and newspapers tend to be "non-peer-reviewed," meaning perhaps just the editor or someone who is not an expert in the field has reviewed the content before publishing.  How do you know if a journal citation is from a peer-reviewed journal?

  • You can do a journal title search in Ulrich's Global Serials Directory
  • You can look for the "Limits" feature in many databases to narrow search results by publication type.
