The UvA Library gives access to several pre-selected resources such as subject specific databases (see sample below) and e-journals.
Search the databases (and Google Scholar) preferably using ‘Advanced search’. ‘Advanced search’ allows you to better translate your research question into a search string (a combination of search terms) suited to find the information you need with the resource you are using.
- Communication & Mass Media Complete
(Mostly) journal articles in the field of communication and (mass) media.
Journal articles, books, conference papers and dissertations in the field of sociology and related disciplines.
- UvA CataloguePlus
Books and journals articles on all topics, available online (off campus access possible) or for loan at the UvA Library.
- Web of Science
Peer reviewed publications (mostly journal articles) on all topics. Use ‘Basic search’ rather than ‘Advanced search’ here.
- Worldwide Political Science Abstracts
Journal articles, books, conference papers and dissertations in the field of political science, international relations, law and public administration & policy.
Other databases for Sociology.
