Databases for Journal Articles and Essays

Searching in the Everything mode will bring up articles, both academic and non-scholarly. If you wish, you can limit your search results to peer-reviewed articles, and refine them further by language, publication date, subject, etc.

As an alternative to HOLLIS, consider using a subject-specific database like the ones below. You'll get the best articles, reviews, and book chapters -- both scholarly and popular -- from the top sources in a particular discipline. You can find databases listed by subject in HOLLIS Databases.
