Political Science: Journal Articles

This guide is a starting point for your research on political science topics

Finding Full-Text Articles

What if I find an article but it isn't full-text?

If the article is not full text in the database you're searching, it may appear in another database or the library may a copy of the journal in print. To check, do the following:

  1. Search the Journal Finder to find a journal title either in any of the library databases or in the print collection. All print journals are located on Speed Library's top floor [recent issues are behind the computers; older issues are bound and in the shelves by the study rooms.]
  2. If you cannot locate the full text of a journal article in print or electronic format, try requesting a copy through the Interlibrary Loan service.
