POSC 120: Democracy and Dictatorship

Professor Kent Freeze - Winter 2021

Political Science and International Relations

The following are good places to look for political science literature. Tip: Usually, it's helpful to start a search trying out lots of synonyms for your topic.  Then, narrow your search using the precise subject headings (i.e. tags) each database uses to sort its articles into categories.

Search Individual Journals

To search in individual journals, use the library's Journals Search to find specific journals. (Some suggested journals are below.) In the Catalyst record, follow the link to the database whose coverage fits your needs. Typically, you'll be brought to a page that will allow you to conduct a full-text search within this specific journal. However, occasionally, you will need to choose from a dropdown "Search within This Journal" (or similar language).
