Please go to the Library homepage at www.Hofstra.edu/Library > Databases by Subject. You may be prompted for your username and password. You can access databases either by subject area (Politics/Government) or alphabetically by name of database.
A few specific databases that index, or list articles published in political science journals that you may want to try include ProQuest Political Science, PAIS (Public Affairs Information Service), and Worldwide Political Science Abstracts. Keep in mind that not every article you retrieve a citation for will be available in full text in that database, however, click on the "Find Article" link included below the citation to see if the full text is available in another database.
You may also want to try OneSearch from the library homepage. OneSearch allows you to search across most of our resources in one search. Simply type your keywords in the search box and click on Search. Most likely, you will retrieve lots of results! However, you can use the limiters on the left side of the screen to limit to peer-reviewed articles, publication date, resource type (books, eBooks, academic articles, newspaper articles, etc.).
