Subject databases

ERIC(EBSCO) is the most important subject database for pedagogy, the science of education. Remember to set the limits peer reviewed and/or articles if you only want hits on scholarly articles.

Web of Science is also a useful database for pedagogy. This is an interdisciplinary database (sciences and social sciences) where topics of education are only a small part. Therefore it is smart to use more general and "broader" keywords when searching.

ProQuest Education Database contains studies and research on education across all levels of education. It includes scholarly journals, dissertations and other relevant sources from 1988 to current.

PsycINFO is the most extensive database for psychological litterature. Articles from approximately 2500 journals are registered in this database. It also contains books, book chapters and doctoral thesis and more. Relevant for among others Educational Psychology.

Medline is one one of the world`s leading index-databases for medical litterature. Here you can search for diagnosis and challenges related to the field of Special Education.
