There are several education databases that you can use to find peer-reviewed journal articles on Kohlberg & Gilligan and on Erikson. And there is a trick you can use to search multiple databases as once (see below).
Go to the HGTC Library website, click on the Databases tab, then on Databases by Subject, then on Education. Select ERIC from the list of databases. Once you are in ERIC, you will see a search box. Right above the search box is a link that says "Choose Databases." Clicking this will bring up a list of all the databases by this company (Ebsco). Select the following from that list and then click OK: ERIC, Education Full Text, and Teacher Reference Center.
The next step is choosing the correct search terms. Try moral development or moral education along with the names of the theorists: for example, Kohlberg and moral development.
Finally, to the left of the results list you will see a box that sys "Refine Results." In it is a check box labeled Scholarly (Peer-Reviewed) Articles. Check this box to narrow your results to only those that are peer-reviewed.
Peer-reviewed articles on Masoro's Wear and Tear Theory can be found in Nursing Resource Center. Go to the library's website again, select Databases, then Databases A-Z, then N for Nursing Resource Center. Search "wear and tear theory" in quotation marks, then in the results list select the check box labeled "to peer-reviewed publications."
