Public Policy

A guide to finding resources related to public policy.

What's On This Page?

This page lists databases that reference journal articles (and some other materials). See tabs to the left for databases related to finding policy issues and papers, etc.

Why Use A Database?

Search a database to find journal, magazine, or newspaper articles. Some databases also provide access to other materials such as dissertations, book chapters, books, datasets, sound recordings, videos, etc.
  • Some databases have the full text of articles. If not, follow these instructions to figure out if the library has the journal, or call the Research Help Desk at 405-325-4142 for assistance.
  • What if the library does not have a journal article that you need? We can still get it for you via our interlibrary loan service. It's free! And articles often come electronically within a few days. For more information see the interlibrary loan page.

Subject Specific Databases

Depending on the topic, a subject-specific database may be useful for research on public policy issues.
