Finding Articles

Conflict Resolution is an interdisciplinary subject, which means you can find useful ideas, research articles, background information, and data in a variety of places. 

Social Sciences & Humanities Databases


The research literature in Education can be useful as well. The key database to search is called ERIC. Note that you may want to avoid using the term conflict resolution in your ERIC searches as you may miss great articles that use different terminology.
