Find Criminology Articles

The databases listed below will help you look for journal articles on your topic. Some, like Criminal Justice Abstracts, are subject-specific, while others, like Academic Search Complete, are multidisciplinary in topic coverage. Journal articles provide current, scholarly information from a variety of perspectives.

When looking at a results list, some of the citations will provide the full text of the article in PDF or HTML format. Other citations will include a "Full Text Finder" link. Clicking on the link will launch a new browser tab, which shows you where to locate the full text of the article. If no full text is available with the citation, you can use the interlibrary loan link to request a copy of the article.
