What is a Research Database?
Research databases are the online tools you should use to search for articles on your topic. These databases include information about articles that have been published in journals, magazines, and newspapers.
Some research databases even provide access to book reviews, film reviews, dramas, financial reports, and many other sources of information.
Many of the articles listed in the databases are available in full-text format. Full-text means the entire text of the article is available online. You can read, print, or email the article directly from the computer.
Try these databases or browse databases by subject.
