Databases to find articles

    Full-text database of articles dating back to the middle 1800's. Does not have current articles, but is excellent for anthropology topics.
    See the box below for relevant journal titles and a sample search screen.
  • Academic Search Complete
    Coverage from all areas of anthropology, including many peer-reviewed anthropology and other social sciences journals.
  • Ethnic Newswatch
    Provides “additional viewpoints from those proffered by the mainstream press.”
    Limit to scholarly articles to avoid “popular” magazines and newspapers.
  • GenderWatch
    Journals, magazines and newspapers on a wide range of gender and gay and lesbian issues.
  • Lexis-Nexis
    A good resource for newspaper articles from around the world. Helpful when looking for news reporting of native peoples etc.
