The Economics subject guide gives you access to useful library databases and trusted Web resources, relevant for researching many topics in economics or finance

Journal Articles

The databases listed below are good sources of top-rated academic journal articles and working papers in Economics and Finance. 

Using them (rather than Web sources) will improve your chances of producing high quality work.

In most databases not all of the content is full text. If you can't access the full text of an article you need, we may have access through a different database. Type the name of the journal into the search box of the library catalogue (see example below) and follow the links to full text. If you are having difficulties accessing articles please do contact me.
