Recommended Subject-Specific Databases

Subject-specific databases are used to locate information about, as well as the entire online text of, articles from academic journals, trade journals, magazines, and newspapers focused on a specific subject area. Tufts University has access to hundreds of library databases and each has slightly different content and features. The list below was selected to represent a sample of the subject-specific databases across a variety of disciplines for your research in this class.

But keep in mind, article databases often cite articles that aren't available in full text at Tufts. Click the Find It @ Tufts button to check to see if we have a complete copy of the article from another source. If it looks like we don't have it, contact your librarian for help getting what you need!

If you still are not finding what you need, consult our full list of article databases or Ask a Librarian.

Find It @ Tufts

The database only gives me a citation, or just an abstract. How do I find the full text?

The  button lets you know if the full text of the article is available:

  1. Online through another library database.
  2. In print by doing a search in JumboSearch.
  3. Available via interlibrary loan by making an ILLiad request.
