Two Types of Article Databases
Which article database to use depends upon your topic.
2. Subject Databases
- Is your topic in a particular subject area?
If so, use a subject database. Subject databases specialize in a particular subject,
and the articles indexed are generally from scholarly sources. Examples
of subject databases and the kinds of articles they identify are:
- Business Source Premier
- Indexes articles from over 8,800 periodicals in the area of business
marketing, management, accounting, finance and economics. Many provide full text.
- Health Source: Nursing & Academic Edition
- Covers over 550 scholarly full text journals focusing on many medical disciplines and
features abstracts and indexing for nearly 850 journals.
- Literature Resource Center
- Includes biographical, critical content, and journal articles on literary
figures from all time periods writing in such genres as fiction, nonfiction, poetry,
drama, history, journalism, and more.
