Finding Academic Analysis & Scholarly Articles

Academic books and journal articles will often examine an issue on a larger, theoretical level. Thus, you may not find an article talking about economic restructuring in Lynnwood, Washington; but you will find plenty of books and articles about the growth of American suburbia in the last half of the 20th century. To find articles that are applicable to the city you are studying stay away from the very concrete (Lynnwood, Washington) and focus on broader issues and themes (suburbs; post-industrialism; a particular industry).
