Article databases are collections of articles in magazines, newspapers, or journals. These databases make it easier to locate articles on your topic because they are collected into one place, and provide search functions that are useful for academic research.
A general article database such as Academic Search Premier includes articles from a broad range of subject areas. They’re a great way to get started.
A subject-specific article database covers only articles that are related to a particular subject area. This makes it easier to narrow your searches to a specific area of research.
