Looking for Journal Articles?

While international development is an interdisciplinary field, most databases of journal articles are not; instead, they collect articles from a single discipline such as public policy or medicine.  The databases here are roughly divided between those focusing on social policy and services (above the horizontal line) and thost that specialize in the health sciences (below the horizontal line).

If your research topic is not well covered in these databases, try the more extensive list under the Find Articles menu tab.

  • PAIS (Public Affairs Information System)
    Global coverage of public affairs and world issues, with an emphasis on issues in the public debate.
  • Social Services Abstracts with full text
    Coverage of current research focused on social work, human services, and related areas, including social welfare, social policy, and community development. Excels in international subjects, and covers 1980-present.
  • Global Health  
    An international public health database.
  • PubMed Central  Icon
    The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) free digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature.
