How to search for journals & databases?

Keep your first search simple

Articles can be found by entering the article title into the search box.

Put the exact title of the article in inverted commas (" ") to ensure better results. 

If this does not work, then search for the name of the whole Journal instead e.g. "Journal of Business Ethics". Use the year and volume number to locate the specific article. 

Useful filters to consider to narrow your search include peer reviewed, date, language and format filters. 

Featured database
