A guide to conducting basic and advanced library research in the environmental studies. Finding important information resources in environmental studies such as articles, books, databases, and websites.
Use article indexes and bibliographies to find scholarly articles on your topic. The University of Kansas Libraries owns, subscribes, or has a license to use many bibliographic databases. Many of these databases include the full‐text of journals. The databases below are, in my estimation, the essential bibliographic databases for environmental studies. However, in a discipline as diverse as environmental studies, a literature review that depends solely of these databases will rarely be comprehensive. Depending on the topic of your research, additional specialized databases should also be consulted.
Provides indexing and abstracts to the journal literature in the area of environmental policy and studies. The database covers applicable areas of agriculture, ecosystem ecology, energy, environmental law, geography, marine & freshwater resources, public policy, social impacts, urban planning, and more. Formerly called: Environmental issues & policy index.
Meteorological & geoastrophysical abstracts (MGA) contains records drawn from the World's literature on meteorology, climatology, atmospheric chemistry and physics, astrophysics, hydrology, glaciology, physical oceanography and environmental sciences. Summaries from over 600 journal titles, as well as conference proceedings, books, technical reports and other monographs, are included.
Indexes and abstracts citations in research journals across the disciplinary spectrum. Online version of: Arts and humanities citation index (1975-present); Science citation index (1900-present); and Social sciences citation index (1956-present).
