The MJC Library subscribes to several databases providing access to peer-reviewed journals. Not only do these databases provide access to this type of material, but they allow you to limit your searches to retrieve only peer-reviewed content. The two below are a great place to start.
The sheer number of journals available through a general EBSCohost search can be intimidating. There is definitely something to be said for narrowing your search to journal that you know will be written from the perspective of a political scientist. That's what the link below does. Click on it, and you will be directed to an Ebscohost search that has been limited to Political Science Journals.
Please keep in mind that this search only searches a very small number of journals. However, they all deal directly with Political Science, they are all full text, and they are all scholarly.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Unfortunately, EBSCOhost does not provide full text access to all of the journals that it indexes (This means that it has abstracts, but not the whole article). If you cannot find full text articles that meet your needs, you can broaden your search by deselecting the full text box in EBSCOhost
Following the link below will lead you to a EBSCOhost search that will allow you to look through abstracts of journals that you can request through ILL
If you want to make an ILL request for a certain article you find in the search above, or an article in the Reference section of another article you have found on a subject, the best way to do so is to search for that exact title of the article, not the journal in WorldCat, and then follow the instructions in the box below.
Sometimes neither the MJC Library nor Columbia will own an item you want. If it is not required for a course, you can request it from another WorldCat library. Physical materials that need to be mailed may take a week or two to arrive, but something like a journal article can be emailed and is often located and sent within a couple of days. There is usually no cost to you for this Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.
