Articles in Databases

EconLit     (Economics database, index and abstracts only)
SocINDEX  (Sociology database including full texts)

A search via Google Scholar does not provide information security: It is not possible to know, which resources from which publishers and which periods are covered by your search nor, how they are ranked. This information is provided by a search in our disciplinary databases. Databases usually do not include the current year of a journal. For detailed information about the journals included in these databases and the periods covered see the coverage lists of EconLit and SocINDEX (html).

Articles which are available through a library subscription are identified in Google Scholar with the "IHS full text link" on the right hand side or, if part of SocINDEX, with the link "EBSCOhost Full Text".

Articles on Publisher Platforms

The library subscribes to bundled journal collections from different publishers / aggregators. These publishers offer additional services on their platforms. For example, you can search articles in the database of the publisher as well as using the personalized functions (article alerts...).
