You can also search for journal articles in Google Scholar and use the 'Find it @ Oxford' link to the to access electronic versions. Google Scholar is the largest database of scholarly literature and gives you quick, relevant results,however it lacks search tools and can sometimes produce too many results. For more structured searching we recommend that you use a bibliographic database ( see box on this page).These are searchable catalogues of journal articles and often also include additional material such as conference papers, research reports, statistics, and more. Most databases are linked to Oxford holdings - look for the 'Find it @ Oxford' link.
If you know the title of the database you wish to use, you can search for it directly in the SOLO search box. If you wish to browse what is available go to Databases A-Z, click on the field labelled 'All Subjects', then select your subject.
