Wondering what the latest research is, but lack access to Gale Resources or Proquest? There are now ample resources, and thanks to the list compiled by the OnlineCollege blog linked below. Although there are many peer-reviewed journals online at the site below, here are a few of the ones that I’ll be following and subscribing to.

There’s no reason why teachers need not know what the latest research has to say about their work, and no reason why “ivory tower” academics can’t share their research with the very people who need to read it most…and be able to do it while securing tenure through publication in peer-reviewed journals!!
