If you are not sure which database to search, start with a large, multi-disciplinary database such as Academic Search Complete.
or the ProQuest Research Library database.
SUBJECT SPECIFIC DATABASES
If you are doing research in a specific subject area, ideally you will also search a more subject-specific database as well.
For example, if you are trying to find articles from education journals for a research paper in an education class, try Education Full-Text or ProQuest Education Journals; if you are searching for articles from medical or nursing journals for a nursing class, try CINAHL or Health Source - Nursing Academic Edition.
SELECTING A DATABASE ~ ACCESSING A SPECIFIC JOURNAL
If you would like to find journal articles from a specific journal, select Find Journals @ RMU.
Type in the journal name, and if we have access to the journal (through an online database subscription or through a print subscription), the Journal List search engine will display a link to the journal on the Journal List search screen that follows.
