There are 2 Types of
ARTICLE Databases . . .
. . . The type you choose will depend on your topic
1.1) General Article Databases
ÂIf your topic is general or covers multiple subjects (i.e. cross-disciplinary), then you should start with one of the general article databases. These cover a wide range of subjects and often index a mixture of popular and scholarly sources. This is often a good place to begin research.
Examples include: Academic Search Premiere * Readers Guide Abstracts * Article First
2) Subject Specific Databases
ÂIf your topic is specific to a particular subject area, then you should use a subject database.
Subject databases only index periodicals that are in that subject area, and the articles are generally from scholarly sources.
Examples include: Business Source Premiere * Chicano Database * Historical Abstracts
