EconLit, the American Economic Association's electronic database, is an important source of references to economic literature. EconLit adheres to the high quality standards long recognized by subscribers to the Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) and is a reliable source of citations and abstracts to economic research dating back to 1886.

EconLit™ with Full Text contains all of the indexing available in EconLit, plus full text for over 600 journals, including the American Economic Association journals with no embargo (American Economic Review, Journal of Economic Literature, and Journal of Economic Perspectives). It also contains many non-English full-text journals in economics & finance. Volume and issue browsing is available for all full-text journals. 

EconLit uses the JEL classification system and controlled vocabulary of keywords to index six types of records: journal articles, books, collective volume articles, dissertations, working papers, and full-text book reviews from the Journal of Economic Literature.
