JST345 Research Skills Guide: Journal Databases

Journal Databases

Journal databases are discipline-specific, which means that you will find more precise and relevant search results compared to Primo Search and Google Scholar.

The Law & Justice Studies and Emergency Management, Policing & Public Safety databases are most relevant to your area of study.  Justice Studies often draws upon other disciplines, so consider searching databases listed under other disciplines as well. For assessment tasks two and three, you could also try the Psychology databases.

The JST301 Research Skills Guide provides more general information about using journal databases, and how to use search operators to narrow your results.
