Philosophy: Articles

This guide provides an overview of resources for the study of Philosophy.

Databases & E-Resources

Find Articles

From a Citation:

  • Go to the E-Journals tab on the Libraries homepage (or search by Journal title in GIL) 
  • Enter your journal title (i.e. Synthese - leave off articles like "the" or "a")
  • If we have access to the title online, you will see links into the databases that have full text. Note the date range included in the online version.

Searching by Topic:
Use keywords:

  • Brainstorm keywords based on your topic. Think of synonyms, and pull words from your readings.  Background reading in scholarly sources can help you identify useful terms.
  • Combine keywords to narrow results using "and" (i.e. "seleucia and coinage") or broaden results using "or" (i.e. "farming or agriculture" ).
  • Experiment with multiple keywords - it may take some time and creativity to find the right words and combinations for your topic.
