Access to Databases

All Monmouth University students, faculty and staff have access to subscription databases on campus.



Remote access to databases requires entry of username and password (same as email) for verification.

Suggested Business Research Databases

These databases cover domestic and global trade, and will help you find data and background information as well as articles and reports from trade magazines.

Search Tips

Use the word "AND" to combine your keywords to make your search more specific, e.g. "substance abuse" AND "domestic violence."

Use synonyms and alternative or related terms - broader or narrower - to expand your relevant results, e.g. "teenagers" | "adolescents" | "youth"

Use truncation "*" to search for words with common roots without entering them individually, e.g. searching for teen* retrieves "teen," "teens", "teenaged", "teenagers." Use the "star" symbol (hit "shift" key + 8) to add truncation to your search term.

You can limit search results in many databases to academic/peer-reviewed journals, by publication date, or full-text only.

Peer Reviewed Journals & Ulrichsweb

Ulrichsweb is a reference database that generates a detailed snapshot of the publication details for most academic journals.To determine whether a specific journal is peer-reviewed, type its title into the search bar. Publication details for that journal should be listed first in your search results; look for the "refereed" icon indicating that a specific journal is refereed (peer-reviewed).

In the below example, the black and white “ref jersey” icon in the second column indicates that American Anthropologist is refereed (peer-reviewed).


General Business Databases

Use these comprehensive databases at the beginning of your research to find journal articles on general business topics and related fields.

Journal Locator

Use Journal Locator to determine whether the MU Library has access to a specific journal or magazine. The article you want may not be available in a database, but could be available in print.  Print holdings of journals can be found on the Library's lower level.  These are shelved alphabetically by title.
