Top 10 Online Databases for General Research
Posted January 24, 2007on:
When writing papers for school, it’s always good to start your research online. Many academic journals publish their articles online—which can give you a head start on research prior to heading to your local library.
Here is a list of the top 10 online research databases for general research:
- Academic Search Elite (EBSCO)
- ABI/INFORM Complete (ProQuest)
- CQ Researcher
- Gale Virtual Reference Library
- Oxford Reference Online Premium
- LexisNexis Academic
- College Source Online
- Plunkett Research Online
- Census Information
- WorldCat (OCLC)
Unfortunately, many of these databases might require usernames and passwords to recieve full access to journal articles. To bypass this, you can often get a free trial for a limited period, or you can search these databases from your local library. Many library computers have automatic access to journal databases. Please leave a comment below if you have any other recommendations for online databases.
