East Asian Studies Electronic Resources: EA Studies Articles & Databases

Electronic resources for East Asian studies, Chinese studies, Japanese studies, and Korean studies at KU

What's this page about?

This page contains selected article databases useful for East Asian studies.  Some databases are full-text while others only contain indexes. Each database has different coverage, so it is highly recommended that you try multiple databases to do a thorough search.  If you find bibliographic records of interest from index databases, please search the KU Online Catalog to find out which journal publishes the article. If we don't have the journal, please place an interlibrary loan request.

Starting Points

These are the recommended databases to begin journal article searches for Asian studies. Also consult ChinaJapan, and Korea library subject guides and East Asian studies course guides for specific resources.  For example, Education articles can be found in Eric, the education specific database. Education related to Asian studies, can also be found in the Bibliography for Asian Studies.


Off campus access

Almost all of the library databases can be accessed off-campus. When you access from off-campus, you will then be prompted for your KU online ID and password to authenticate yourself as an authorized user. If you find sources through Google or other search engines, you may not automatically get access to Library databases and resources.

Other Articles & Databases

Also consult subject guides for ChinaJapan, and Korea for language databases and course guides for research help.
