Attention Political Science researchers!

by Merrill Stein and Kristyna Carroll

A trial of Worldwide Political Science Abstracts (WPSA) is available until Feb. 11, 2011.

WPSA is one of the premier databases in political science, covering many areas of study, including comparative politics, developing nations, electoral systems, environmental policy, labor relations, political psychology, and many more!

Hosted on the ProQuest platform, WPSA allows for simultaneous searching with other databases, such as PAIS International (CSA), ProQuest Newspapers, ProQuest Social Science Journals (ProQuest) or Ethnic NewsWatch (ProQuest). Advanced searching includes limiting by document type and language.  The WPSA trial also introduces ProQuest’s new Google-like interface, promoting a link to scholarly journals.

A in the citations will link to any journal subscriptions to which we provide access.

Several institutions that have had success with WPSA are the University of Pennsylvania, University of Notre Dame, Georgetown University, George Washington University, Dickinson College and Johns Hopkins University.
