This online tutorial gives information and guidance on academic integrity issues, specifically plagiarism. It provides a set of four exercises to check your learning.
What's an academic source? Why does it matter?
Take a look at the articles below. Are they scholarly or popular? How can you tell? When and how would you use each one?
Gibson, Annie McNeill. "Sambando New Orleans: Dancing Race, Gender, And Place With Casa Samba." Studies In Latin American Popular Culture 31.(2013): 99-119. Academic Search Premier. Web.
The databases listed below are multidisciplinary in focus, so you'll be able to identify and locate journal articles on samba or related aspects of samba from many different disciplinary perspectives. If you'd like to search within a specific academic discipline (such as history, anthropology, or political science), use the databases listed on the next tab on this guide.
Note also that some of these databases include both popular and scholarly sources, so look for the "peer reviewed" limiter box.
