Reliable Web Resources

Most of these sites can be accessed through an Infotrac search, but in case you like this search mode better, here are some links.  Be aware, though, that

1) Infotrac will give you the citation at the bottom of each article, which you just need to copy and paste into your works cited page;

2) Sometimes you will not be able to read an article on the website unless you are a subscriber to that publication.
