Don't forget your local librarians! If you have a public library or public college/university in your area, stop in and ask one of the librarians for assistance. Helping students and other users find research and other scholarly information is what academic librarians do best!
Some of the best research is only available from commercial publishers who do not distribute their content freely. Each article can cost you anywhere from $20 to $50. Many libraries subscribe to these same journals, however, and will allow you to photocopy articles for pennies per page.
