Finding Research Material

When choosing a research tool to find information on environmental topics, there are several things to keep in mind:

  • What type of information do I want (e.g. Science journals, popular magazine articles, news reports, government publications)? Different databases may focus on particular document types. See also: How do I distinguish between different types of journals?
  • What subject areas am I interested in? Each database has a particular subject scope that you need to be aware of, e,g, public policy, environmental health, economic development.
  • What are the potential assumptions or biases behind the resources? Think critically about the the information you will find.

The resources below are a selection of those available that cover environmental issues, but make sure to look at our longer list of resources in the environmental sciences.
