GLS102: Comparative Government and Politics: Finding Articles

Tips for Searching

You can use the databases below to find articles published in the scholarly and popular press on the politics and governments of countries around the world.

For example, if you were comparing and contrasting the experience of transitioning from communism in Poland and Romania, you might try the following searches:

Poland AND Romania AND transition*
Poland AND Romania AND communis*
Poland AND transition*
Romania AND transition*
Poland AND post-communist
Romania AND post-communist

The *(asterisk) is a truncation symbol. Truncation allows you to search the "root" form of a word with all its different endings by adding a symbol to the end of a word.

So the asterisk after communis* will search for the terms communism and communist.
