Article Databases - Getting Started

The following are more general, interdisciplinary databases. If your search terms are not sufficiently specific, you may get a lot of "false returns" or articles only tangentially relevant to your topic.  While they do contain a lot of full text, save these general search tools for when you need to step outside your discipline-specific databases.

  • Academic Search Complete
    Multi-disciplinary database covering the social sciences, humanities, education, computer sciences, engineering, physics, chemistry, language and linguistics, arts & literature, medical sciences, ethnic studies, and many more.
  • Dissertation Abstracts & Digital Dissertations  
    Full-text of many dissertations after 1997, citations and/or abstracts prior to 1997
    Full text, scholarly database covering the humanities and social sciences. Diciplines covered include African & African-American studies, business, economics, health policy, and women's studies.
  • ProjectMuse
    More than 300 online journals mostly for the humanities from Johns Hopkins University Press, Duke University Press and Indiana University Press. Full-text. Most recent years only.
  • Web of Science
    An index to over 8000 highly ranked scientific journals. Perform a traditional search for articles, or conduct a 'cited reference search' to find how many times an article has been cited since being published. Coverage from 1976-present.
