Subject databases

The library subscribes to a number of subject-specific databases. The databases on this page have been selected as being of particular value to Criminology students.

Finding Journal Articles - Law databases

Lexis Library and Westlaw provide access to case law and legislation as well as full-text journals and reports. 

Searching for articles via journal publishers

The websites below enable you to search for both journal articles and journal titles via publishers' search engines.

Search tip: these sites provide access to all the journals the company publishes.  The University of Hull may not have subscriptions to all the content available.  If available, try limiting your search to "subscribed titles" and look out for the icons which indicate access; these differ on each site.

Journal Search

You can also search for whole journals. This is useful if you want to browse articles in a particular subject. The Library subscribes to thousands of eJournals (accessible online) and there are also lots of paper editions in the Library.

Useful Journal Databases
