Databases to use depending on your track or topic:

Is this journal legitimate?

In the last 5-7 years, scholarly publishing has been plagued by explosive growth of bogus scientific journals, sometimes called "predatory journals." 

Library databases will screen out these fake journals for you, but if you are picking something from the public internet, you need to add an extra step to your research.  You need to make sure the article you are looking at comes from a genuine peer-reviewed journal.  

There is a library database called Cabell's Blacklist that lists predatory journals.

Use the ADVANCED SEARCH  to look for keywords. The basic search on the homepage is currently not working well.
