Scholarly Articles

Harvard Business Review by Shazz Mack, on FlickrKey Resources




      First Steps

      EBSCO and Proquest contain articles from thousands of scholarly journals covering all aspect of business studies and management theory. You can search by keyword, subject, or for a specific article if you already have the details. Both databases also allow you to set-up alerts on topics that interest you.

      A quick way of seeing which journals database offers the full-text of a specific journal article is to use the ejournals@cambridge database which searches all the e-journals held across the University of Cambridge.

      If you are using Google Scholar from on-campus you should find direct links into the full-text of our journal databases on the search results screens.  From off campus, add ‘University of Cambridge’ under ‘Scholar Preferences’ > ‘Library Links.’

      Adding Depth

      Other key journal databases for business and management include: JSTOR (which offers a wealth of archival articles but does not provide access for the most recent years); Science Direct; and EconLit.

      Zetoc allows you to set-up alerts so that you are emailed when journals you are interested in are published.

      You may also want to use the Social Science Citation Index on the Web of Knowledge where you can perform citation searches and identify what impact specific journals and journal articles have.

      Another useful source is Scopus which provides access to articles in the social sciences and other disciplines.
