Political Science Research Databases
Besides newspaper databases, we have access to databases of political science research and trade articles.
For this assignment I recommend ProQuest Political Science. It indexes trade publications like Roll Call, as well as research publications like The American Political Science Review. It also indexes doctoral dissertations.
Often there are multiple databases for searching a single newspaper. This is due to different date ranges offered by different products.
New York Times - 1980 to present
Wall Street Journal:

Getting the full text of articles in GALILEO:

- If we have access to article in another database, a link either directly to the article or to the online version of the journal will be provided;
- If we do not have access to the article online, you have two options:
