About UNT Databases for Socology topics

UNT Libraries subscribes to many databases that include full text articles for your Sociology research assignments and projects. Just log on with your EUID & password for off campus access. Not sure where to start, try SocINDEX with Full Text (from EBSCO)

EBSCO Databases (for articles) --> click "Choose Databases" to add/subtract.

This list contains specific  EBSCO databases. There are alternatives to EBSCO you may also search, such as those from Proquest or Sage which are different vendors, so the look of these databases differ but search strategies and tips can be applied.  There may be unique e-journals included and or some overlap in databases.  Remember, research is a process. We are here to help if you need us!


Example of searching two EBSCO databases for a topic:

General topic: Careers in Sociology

  • EBSCO database search in the following two databases: SocINDEX with Full Text (from EBSCO) which contains scholarly, peer-reviewed articles, and  Vocational and Career Collection which is useful for career exploration but not so useful to scholarly articles.

    • Note: You can remove or add databases with the "Choose Databases" link next to your search box. 
  • Search terms Sociologists AND Career Development
  • Limited for Full Text & Scholarly (Peer Reviewed)
  • Page View Detailed

Usually two is plenty, but sometimes you still have thousands of results. Want to limit further, try another variable. Perhaps try United States, or Texas -- what did you see?  What happens if you add databases?
