Higher Education Research: Databases

Education databases

Broadening your search

As well as the specialist educational databases listed on the left you will find other databases useful when researching the area of higher education. For example many of our psychology databases will contain journal articles relating to behavioural aspects of education, our social science databases will cover aspects relating to economic education, sociology and the political context in which institutions have to operate. Many disciplines also have their own educational related journals such as Journal of Research in Science Teaching and Academy of Management Learning & Education.

To access this broader range of literature you may wish to use one of our research databases SCOPUS or Web of Science. These are particularly useful for author searching, cited reference searching and for analysing the literature.


Some of our databases won't include the full-text clicking on the following symbol will check both our print and electronic holdings for you.
