How to find research articles

The following journals often publish very accessible overviews of the current state-of-the-art of economic research on a specific topic. Especially the Journal of Economic Perspectives is very enjoyable to read. Browsing a few articles therein could be a good starting point for identifying a research question. The other journals are also very useful and will help you find material for the literature review of your assignment.

Annual Review of Economics

Journal of Economic Literature

Journal of Economic Perspectives

Journal of Economic Surveys

The following repositories are also useful for finding research (this also includes working papers, i.e. very recent manuscripts that are not yet published in peer-reviewed journals):
