A to Z List of Databases
Use these databases to find journal articles on general business topics and related fields.
To assist in developing search strategies for BM250 research, please view the tutorials for the Academic Search Complete and Proquest Central multi-disciplinary databases:
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.
These multi-subject databases access a variety of sources, including newspapers, scholarly journals, and popular articles on a broad range of topics.
These databases will help you find data and background information as well as articles and reports from trade magazines.
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. Click here to view a Journal Locator Tutorial.
