Communication: Finding Articles

Online resources for research in communication

Finding Articles--Communication Databases

    A few databases focus specifically on the discipline called Communication. But the interests of scholars in this field go into so many different areas you should also look at the rest of this page. Further down are databases that cover many disciplines at one time. The column on the right includes databases for other subject disciplines that also interest Communication scholars. Let us know if we've left anything out.

    NOTE: Besides journal articles, many of these databases also include other research materials such as dissertations and conference proceedings.

    Finding Articles -- General and Multidiscipline

    Combine journals from all areas of the social sciences, humanities and arts; also general interest publications. With one search, you may be able to pull out research from many different disciplines.

    Finding Articles--Specific Subjects

    These concentrate on specific disciplines and fields of study, usually covering a larger number of publications than more general databases. They include Anthropology, Business, Education, Ethnic & Gender Studies, Film, History, Information Science, Law & Public Policy, Psychology, Sociology. Have we left anything out?
