Communication Abstracts moves to EBSCO

The Communication Abstracts database, formerly on CSA, is now hosted on the EBSCO platform.  You can now search Communication & Mass Media Complete simultaneously with Communication Abstracts.  Near the top center, click Choose Databases.  A list of all the databases Falvey subscribes to will appear.  Check off the ones you would like to search.


With this new acquisition, EBSCO has also made some enhancements to Communication Abstracts.  For more information, see this news release from EBSCO.  You may also notice that EBSCO made some changes to its search interface over the summer.  To read about these changes, click the New Features tab in the upper right hand corner.


About Communication Abstracts

Abstracts articles from journals, conference proceedings and hard-to-find documents. Includes scientific research and government policies. Distinct from ComAbstracts and ComIndex, Communication Abstracts is produced at Temple University and provides abstracting coverage of books and journals in all areas of communication studies (mass, interpersonal and new communication technologies).
