ECNM Graziadio and SPP Economics Research: Locating Articles on an Economics Topic

This guide will provide data and scholarly resources for students studying and researching the field of economics.

Why Look for Journal Articles, Working Papers, and Other Publications?

Articles are great sources of information for your research. They may be found in newspapers, peer-reviewed or scholarly journals, magazines, chapters in books, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journals, etc. Articles provide:

  •     highly specific information on a topic, including hard-to-find data
  •     the most recent or advanced information available
  •     background or historical information on a particular topic
  •     bibliographies that may lead to additional information on a topic

Working papers are works in progress. They may be theoretical or statistical pre-published articles, book chapters, reviews or conference papers. Depending on the guidelines of the publisher, papers may be under consideration for submission or forthcoming in academic journals. Working papers are published by policy organizations or research institutions, or presented at conferences in order to engender discussion and ideas based on new thought or research.
