HRM540 Research Skills Guide: Use Journal Databases

Why Should You Use Journal Databases?

Journal databases:

  • Are the best source of academic or scholarly information for your assessments
  • help you locate peer reviewed articles
  • Are subject specific, so that you get more relevant results
  • Have many options for refining results

You can find the Library's databases on the A-Z Databases page.

Databases are grouped into subject areas. The Policing, Security & Emergency Management and Law & Government lists will be particularly useful for your study. The Indigenous Studies databases may also be helpful as well.

  • If you cannot find the full text click on the Find it button to check if the article is available elsewhere.
