Economics Research Navigator: Find Articles
Gateway to economics research resources and services available in SMU
Databases allow you to search for scholarly journal articles, book chapters and conference papers. Some databases include the full text. Specialized databases contain financial data, marketing data or statistical data.
Search the relevant databases individually on their own platform and use more specific keywords, Boolean operators, search fields, search limits to get a more targeted and smaller set of results. Use the Help function in individual databases for more information on search functionalities.
