If you know the details of a particular article you'd like to find:
Sometimes a lecturer may recommend a journal, but not any particular articles for you to read.
If you would like to find any articles about a topic but don't know of any particular resources to look for, you should use the links on this page to try a relevant database.
You can then use keywords which describe your topic to find articles and other resources. Some databases have more information about some topics than others, so you should try searching a few different databases for all your research areas.
Please note that while the full text of articles is often available, sometimes you will just find the abstract - this varies between databases.
These three databases look similar because they are all hosted on the same platform. These short videos and written guides explain how to search these databases, using Business Source Complete as an example.
Academic Search Complete is a large multi-disciplinary database and includes many journals on Psychology, Sociology and research methods.
Business Source Complete covers aspects of coaching and mentoring in business, in journals from many different publishers.
PsychInfo is useful if you are studying psychological dimensions of learning. It indexes journal articles, books and reports.
Emerald insight is a multidisciplinary database of journals published by Emerald. For some articles the database only has abstracts (summaries) but for others it contains the full text.
British Education Index indexes about 350 education journals. It also includes references to books and reports.
Web of Science is a multi-disciplinary database which includes the Science and Social Science Citation Indexes.
Zetoc gives access to the British Library's electronic Table of Contents. It contains details of approximately 20,000 current journals and 16,000 conference proceedings and is updated daily.
