Sociology & Criminal Justice Databases

When you search an individual EBSCOhost database for articles, all of its helpful tools will be available, including Subject Terms, Cited References (an article's bibliography of related articles), and Times Cited (later articles that cite your chosen article). Cited References and Times Cited are great for doing literature reviews.

JSTOR has full-text of journals going back decades in some cases, but not the latest articles; it's especially good for literature reviews or a historical perspective on a topic. Go to HeinOnline if your topic involves a legal issue such as discrimination, governmental regulation, or criminal law.

To find book-length dissertations and theses on a sociology or criminal justice topic (including some written as early as the nineteenth century), use ProQuest Dissertations and Theses. Many are available in full-text; others may require interlibrary loan.
