Good Education Databases for Secondary Education

What is an article database anyway?

 Library databases are indexes that allow users to search for articles from various publications and/or periodicals (journals, newspapers, and magazines).

The information found in a database result consists of  3 parts: a citation, an abstract, and when it is available, the full-text of the article.

  • Citation- gives the publication information for the article or book chapter including author, title, periodical name, issue, date, and pages numbers.
  • Abstract -A brief summary of an article or book.
  • Full-text – a complete copy of the entire article.
