Academic Search Premier
Academic Search Premier is a multi-disciplinary database designed specifically for academic institutions. It includes articles from academic journals, popular magazines, and major newspapers.
Databases do not understand sentences or "natural language". We have to use keywords -- the main words of our topics -- when searching. Here are some example keywords to use in searching. Mix and match them to find more articles. (Note: this is not an exhaustive list!)
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) examples: facilitation, negotiation, mediation, arbitration
victim-Offender Reconciliation Programs (VORP)
truth and Reconciliation commissions
peer mediation (especially in schools)
