Find academic or scholarly articles on teenage depression by using a specialized search engine such as Google Scholar and entering your search query in a simple phrase search or advanced search, according to Western New England University. The website suggests enclosing your search query in quotes to retrieve articles or papers containing that exact phrase, but some sites may require a fee to view full articles.
Google Scholar automatically filters and arranges articles by their relevance, but if you select the "Since Year" and "Arrange by Date" options, you can retrieve newer articles, explains the Google Scholar website. Using the "Cited By" tool when you find a promising article can help you find more recent articles that build upon the original article, allowing you to follow ideas and trends up to the present, notes Walden University. Another idea is to use Boolean logical operators in the search field to filter unwanted search terms.
Aside from Google Scholar, you can use periodical databases in a library to find results; search for articles in journals such as the Journal of the American Medical Association or the Journal of Adolescent Health. Scholarly articles often appear in peer-reviewed journals, according to the Cornell University Library.
