Looking for Journal Articles?

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

  • 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.
  • Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management
    Covers the environmental sciences, from Agricultural Biotechnology and Air Pollution, to Waste Management and Water Resource Issues. Coverage from 1967-present.
  • Environment Index
    Provides abstract/index information for over 1000 titles in the area of environmental policy and studies. Over 500 titles have ongoing coverage. The product has an Environment thesaurus that will assist users in research.
  • PAIS
    Global coverage of public affairs and world issues, with an emphasis on issues in the public debate.
