International Development: Article databases


These databases - mostly bibliographic rather than fulltext - will identify the journal article literature on aspects of international development, as well as books, book chapters, and other material. They may cover gray literature - technical reports, project reports, conference papers, and other informally published materials. Most of these databases will link to fulltext through the PennText Article Finder.

These databases identify articles published in particular disciplines. You may need to use PennText to search for the article online or in print, or to request it from another library.

Just look for the PennText icon after the results from your database search:
