There are a large number of database products that provide excellent content related to Political Science and International Relations; some provide good full-text coverage allowing you to link directly to the full article or book within the database product.
Others are indexing databases - they help you to find information through the indexing only of titles and abstracts across a wide range of sources. They will generally help you identify where you can get full-text online or print access through a "Find It@UWA" link button or direct link to OneSearch.
Here is a small selection of some of our full text and indexing database products; link through to our listing of databases related to these topics.
These databases contain information on a wide range of subjects.
The best place to begin to search for a specific journal title is in OneSearch. Use the pull down menu to select "Journal Title" and search using a key word or actual publication title.
