Information about topics in communication studies can be found in a number of scholarly journals and magazines. To identify articles in communication studies, consult the following indexes and abstracts. To search those available through the Rod Library Web page, select the desired index or abstract title from the Databases A-Z list. Many of the following databases also index and summarize other types of relevant publications such as book chapters, books, conference papers, and dissertations.
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of communication, there are times and projects for which the best indexes are those from other fields. For help in deciding which databases or indexes to consult for your topic, please ask a reference librarian.
