Peer Review Explained

Find Articles with Google Scholar

Before searching, be sure to set PCC as your library in your browser by:

  1. Visiting the link to set "Library Links" settings for Google Scholar
  2. using the search box to search for "Portland Community College",
  3. checking the check box that appears underneath the search to select “Portland Community College – Find it @ PCC”, 
  4. and then selecting the Save button.

This will ensure that when you search Google Scholar in your browser, you will see Find It @ PCC links to full text if we have the article (Google Scholar sometimes also provides links to other free sources for full text).

You can learn more about setting Google Scholar preferences on the PCC Library Website

Why? Who Cares?

Academia, research, the library - these are places and spaces with a shared culture. Culture, in a nutshell, is what people do.

Understanding the culture of a place or people helps us figure out how to engage.

Research isn't any different. My friend Anne-Marie at OSU is a really smart researcher and she came up with this list of things that scholars and experts do, a list of things that make up their culture.
