Journal Articles

Key Databases for Journal Articles: 

Additional Databases: 

Good to know:

  1. Within a database, limit your search to scholarly articles when it is appropriate to disregard other resources.
  2. Never limit to full-text only as we may subscribe to the journal you find from another vendor.  Use the Get it! button to see where else the article may be available.
  3. Use available options to search more than one database at a time.
  4. Look for the option to set up an RSS feed  or to Create an Alert.  You are then notified when a new entry is added to the database that meets your search criteria.
  5. Use the Interlibrary Loans RACER form to request items not held at Carleton’s library.  
  6. For additional relevant databases, look at the Subject Guides that best relate to your topic, such as  Global & International Studies,  Philanthropy & Nonprofit LeadershipGovernment InformationCanadian Studies, Business, Sociology etc.​
