Political Science 21: Introduction to Comparative Politics

Article Databases

Research databases let you search hundreds, sometimes thousands, of academic journals at one time. If you find an article that looks useful, but the database doesn't provide the entire text, look for the blue Find It @ Tufts button. If there isn't one, you can copy and paste the article title into JumboSearch and see if we have another way of accessing it. If that still doesn't get you to the full text of the article, you can request it through Interlibrary loan (ILLiad)
