Management: Databases

In this guide:

Databases are large collections of electronic materials, usually, but not always, with regards to collections of journal articles. They are the vehicle of choice for searching for journal articles for a few reasons.

First, databases offer the chance to restrict by topic. Google Scholar or the catalogue need to cover all topics, but a business databases searches business journals. This means your searches are more precise, and you will get fewer false hits.

Second, databases offer more powerful searching features. For example, Proquest Business, allows you to search on a variety of fields including author, by abstract, or by subject area. (We have a video demonstrating how to search Proquest here.)

As such, databases are considered to be the best practice for topic searching, being faster and more accurate than other options.
