Best Places to find journal articles

Political Extremism and Radicalism

Political Extremism and Radicalism provides insight on unorthodox (by contemporary standards), fringe groups from both the right and left of the political spectrum through rare, hard-to-access primary sources. The content supports questions on philosophical, social, political, and economic ideologies as well as on contemporary issues surrounding gender, sexuality, race, religion, civil rights, universal suffrage, and more.

Presidential Studies Quarterly (Journal)

Presidential Studies Quarterly (PSQ) is the only scholarly journal that focuses on the most powerful political figure in the world - the president of the United States.  Offers articles, features, review essays, and book reviews covering all aspects of the American presidency.

Finding news and newspapers

Newspapers record events as they occur. They are considered primary sources because they are generated by a particular event, by those who participated in the event; or by those who directly witnessed it. Search Historical Newspapers to find out about past events;search Access World News or Nexis Uni (former Lexis Nexis) for current information.
