Looking for Research Articles?
To find articles on a current topic in political science, check out one of these databases. Magazine and journal articles are published more frequently than books and other information, so they may be used to find current information.
The Library's Reference Online Center (ROC Lab) has many other databases listed, from general to specific. Remember, these databases are only for use by University of Louisiana at Lafayette students, faculty and staff. Use your ULID and password to access from off-campus.
