To find scholarly articles or studies, you will need to use a database (not CLIO). On this page, you will find a lot of options to start your research, but these are not all of the databases that you have access to as a Columbia University student! Explore the other research guides to find other databases for different disciplines, or make an appointment with a librarian.
We recommend you start with EBSCO, because SocIndex is indexed in EBSCO.
All of these interdisciplinary databases are good for sociology research also:
- JSTOR: Provides access to more than 12 million academic journal articles, books, and primary sources in 75 disciplines.
- Project MUSE: Current collection of journals in the humanities and history, maintained by Johns Hopkins University Press. Full-text searching available. It also provides access to individual titles within the collection, such as Africa Today, American Imago, Contemporary Pacific, Ethnohistory, and Public Culture, as well as to other interdisciplinary journals which may also prove useful to anthropological research.
- ProQuest: This resource includes citations and full-text articles in academic & professional disciplines, e.g., business, economics, gender studies, health, literature, management, political science; as well as news and general interest items.
- Scopus: Provides indexing, abstracting of, and citation linking to journals in biology, physics, chemistry, geosciences, agriculture, medicine, business, social work, and the social sciences.
