Interdisciplinary Secondary Sources
If you are looking for scholarly articles outside the legal world, there are numerous databases available from Woodruff Library (via Databases@Emory) to begin your search. For starters, we would recommend:
Academic Search Complete: ASC is a comprehensive scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text database, with more than 5,300 full-text periodicals, including 4,400 peer-reviewed journals.
JSTOR: The Journal Storage Project provides access to digitized versions of complete runs of key scholarly journals in the arts, humanities, literature, social sciences, and selected scholarly journals in related disciplines such as business, ecology, music, and statistics.
Web of Science (ISI Citation Indexes): A collection of multidisciplinary citation databases, including Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index.
Databases@Emory By Subject:
Emory eJournals: Emory's online index for journals. A great place to start if you know the title of the journal you are searching for.
What if it is not available at Emory?
If a journal article is not available at Emory (in print or via one of our databases), we can help find it at another library. ILLiad is Emory's system for processing interlibrary loans. Once logged into ILLiad, you will need to fill out the "starred" (*) sections plus any additional information you can provide. Please keep in mind that interlibrary loan requests will take additional time to process.
