This course page was created for POLS 4650/5650: War, Peace, and Politics with Dr. Nori Katagiri in Fall 2022. This is just a selection of sources that may be useful to you in this course. Please explore the full Political Science Library Research Guide, for additional resources. Contact your Political Science Librarian (Rebecca Hyde) with questions or to make an appointment for an in depth research consultation. For quick and/or general questions you can also use our 24/5 chat assistance to get help with your research!
Some databases will include the full-text of articles, but others will include the button which links to full-text when available and if not available, gives you the option to request articles for free through Interlibrary Loan's Illiad service. Never pay for an article!
Have you already spent 20 minutes on your research and you feel like you're hitting a wall? Stop what you're doing and contact your librarian!
Research takes time, and when you're working on research for a paper you might spend hours researching and try many, many searches before you're done. But you shouldn't spend hours searching and finding nothing. If you spend 20-30 minutes on your research and you're not finding anything remotely relevant, please stop what you're doing and contact your librarian! I can help you develop search search strategy, and maybe choose another database more suited for your topic.
