Databases - a few examples

The Yale Library subscribes to over 1,500 different databases with various kinds of "content" - scholarly and popular articles, newspapers (historical and current), primary sources, datasets, law cases, images, reference sources like biographies and language dictionaries - and it would be impossible to list them all here. But a few of the most heavily used ones are below. You can find a complete list of all the library's databases, listed alphabetically by title. here. If you would like to find the databases most relevant to your subject area or major, in our collection of Subject Guides.


Articles+ is a broad and deep database of scholarly articles, popular magazine articles, newspaper coverage, book reviews and more, in almost any subject you can imagine. It's the first place many students go to when they begin their research. Most of the results are available in full-text for online reading. Advanced searching features and "facets" allow you to discover articles using different criteria: date of publication, peer-reviewed, language, etc.

Articles+ is compatible with Zotero, a citation management tool that is very popular with students.


JSTOR is a broad humanities and social science database with full-text articles from the most important peer-reviewed journals in several disciplines. it is not an exhaustive database in those subjects, but it does offer an excellent collection of scholarly work.


Scopus is a comprehensive database for scholarly, peer-reviewed literature in the sciences. Scopus is also compatible with Zotero.
