Key Social Sciences Databases
Mega-searches selected journal article databases simultaneously. Databases include Academic Search Premier and PsycINFO. Includes NZ content. Excellent starting point for undergraduates.
A scholarly database with broad, international coverage of social sciences journals, that searches for articles on a topic and tracks citations.
Web of Science
Another scholarly topic and citation database suitable for the social sciences.
Just like Google, but searches for academic literature rather than websites, and links to Massey University Library’s subscribed content. It provides good coverage of reports too and is also a great source for New Zealand material.
Other Recommended Social Sciences Databases

Scholarly international coverage of sociology, social sciences, economics and women's studies.
Searches across the journals published by the American Anthropological Association.
