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

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.
