Recommended General Article Databases

Article databases are used to locate information about as well as the entire online text of articles from academic journals, trade journals, magazines, and newspapers. Tufts University has access to hundreds of library databases and each has slightly different content and features. The list below has been selected by librarians as the best starting places for research in First Year Writing classes.

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