Management, Accounting, Economics & Finance: Key Databases

Searching key databases

Databases allow you to search for different types of information and they are used to find reliable research about a topic.

Scholarly journal databases sometimes referred to as bibliographic databases, allow you to search through the contents of thousands of journals so you can select useful research articles. Other scholarly sources cover other types of information such as audio visual, newspapers, theses and other content from relevant providers. Company and financial data sources are also listed.

If your research topic is linked to other disciplines you may need to use other databases. A full list of subscribed to resources is available via  the  A-Z Databases page. If you need assistance please get in touch.
