Databases can help you to trace journal articles and other publications (including book reviews, reports and conference proceedings) in your subject area. Most databases provide abstracts (summaries) and a few are full-text (they contain complete articles). Importantly, databases provide high quality academic information, which is necessary for your assignments and research.
