Senior Project Series – More Scholarly Articles

Databases Beyond Communication

There are many databases that cover the social sciences generally, as well as those that fall under different disciplines entirely, that may be helpful for finding scholarly articles related to your research.

Sociological Abstracts
Covers sociological topics in fields such as anthropology, economics, education, medicine, community development, philosophy, demography, political science, and social psychology. Journals published by sociological associations, groups, faculties and institutes, and periodicals containing the term “sociology” in their titles are abstracted fully.

Social Sciences Full-Text
Index to international, English language journals in psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, economics, political science and law.

Business Source Premier
Business Source Premier is a full text business database, covering management, economics, finance, accounting, international business.

PsycINFO
Indexes journals, dissertations and some books in the fields of personality psychology, social psychology, educational psychology and more.

Ethnic NewsWatch
A comprehensive full text database of the newspapers, magazines and journals of the ethnic, minority and native press.

GenderWatch
A full text database of unique and diverse publications that focus on how gender impacts a broad spectrum of subject areas.

Getting to the Full Text 

Although it can be appealing to check the “Full Text Only” box as you search, resist the temptation!  Checking that box will eliminate articles owned by the library through different vendors, as well as articles not owned by the library, from your results.

Articles owned through different vendors can be easily accessed through the FindIt button.  Articles not owned by Falvey Library can be requested through Interlibrary Loan.  These requests are usually fulfilled electronically within 5 to 7 days.
