How To Read A Scholarly Article

Looking for Journal Articles?

In addition to the peer-reviewed journal articles and other publications indexed by PAIS and Worldwide Political Science Abstracts, look for the latest political science findings in the conference proceedings listed in Political Research Online.

The following databases cover scholarship relevant to particular geographical regions, but are interdisciplinary, offering a range of scholarship from the humanities, social sciences, and to a lesser extent natural sciences.  For Latin American Studies, don't miss the Latin American Studies and the Political Science: Latin America research guides. For Asia, see the Asian studies research guide.

Political economy is an interdisciplinary study of the relationship between the public and the private, the political and the economic, and has its origins in philosophical debates of the Enlightenment. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, scholars may find valuable resources from the fields of history, business, economics, and philosophy in addition to political science and policy studies.
