Welcome to the Bio IRP LibGuide

These resources were chosen by your teachers to give you the most authoritative sources for your research. Of course, to get the most results, you will search the open web--and you will have the additional responsibility of evaluating the sources for authority.

If you have any questions about using these resources or how to cite them, please ask Mrs. Hanson.

Science Magazine Search

Your teachers chose five science magazines as good starting places for your research. Search all five here in one box.  You won't find the actual research here, but you will find articles about research.  

In Class Activity

You will evaluate two articles with the CRAAP test and create citations for them using APA format.  The goal is to develop your evaluation and citation skills.
