Worldwide Political Science Abstracts from Proquest is a useful database to search for ¬†journal articles, books, dissertations, book reviews, ¬†and working papers in the fields of International Political Science and International Relations. It also covers complementary subject areas such as international law and public administration/policy. Tick ‘peer reviewed’ to see only articles from peer reviewed/refereed journals.

Although the database’s name includes the word ‘abstracts,’ which usually implies that full articles are not available, our Proquest databases are set up to link seamlessly to any articles which are available in the Library’s other online subscriptions.

Look for the ‘Link to Full Text’ option in your Proquest results:
