Social and Public Policy: Articles

Using the Library to Find Articles

Gumberg Library includes many databases and E-Journals related to Social and Public Policy.

Performing a QuickSearch (from the library homepage) on a topic will give you a list of mixed results that will include books, eBooks, articles, and other items. A search can yield hundreds to thousands of results, so to find the most relevant research for your topic, you will need to limit your results.

Individual databases must be searched separately to search solely for articles, and can be found on the main library page via the Research Databases link.

Start with the databases that are good for social and public policy research and social sciences research, using the links to the databases highlighted on this page.
