Academic Resources 

Library Online Databases

Students new to Chinese politics, Asian politics, comparative politics, international relations, and political economy often ask where to find sources for their research papers. One of the first places to look for sources is library online databases to which our library subscribes. Only students, faculty, and staff with a valid ID and PAC will be able to access library online databases. Below are just two selected databases for your reference. You should check the library's main database page to find more databases. 

OCLC/FIRST SEARCH. Click this database for sources of articles:  ArticleFirst (FirstSearch), and then type in the key words to search for articles you are looking for. To login to the university website, click http://www.library.sfsu.edu/ and then click on Databases - Find Articles & More. Click on list all databases. All databases are alphabetically listed. Find ArticleFirst and click on it.

EBSCO HOST. This database contains full text articles or abstracts. To login, click on http://www.library.sfsu.edu/ and then click on Databases - Find Articles & More.  Two EBSCO HOST databases are listed: Academic Search Elite (EBSCOHost) and EBSCOhost EJS (Electronic Journals Service)

You should always start from searching library online database!!

A List of Journals

Below is a list of journals divided according to areas of study. However, bee careful: some of them are not necessarily academic. Most often in political science courses, students are required to use academic sources for their research. Click this link for detailed information: What is an academic article? WHEN YOU FIND A USEFUL ACADEMIC ARTICLE, ALWAYS CHECK THE FOOTNOTES, ENDNOTES, OR BIBLIOGRAPHY CAREFULLY. This will often lead you to some more relevant and valuable sources related to your research topic.

START EARLY! Our library may not carry journals and books you need. But, almost any book or article you may need can be obtained free of charge through Document Delivery Services at the library. This usually takes at least a week or two, so you need to find and order the material early. Otherwise, you may not get it in time. To order material online, click on the Document Delivery Services link on library home page and fill up the order form. The best part of it is FREE.
