About Periodical Indexes

About Indexes [aka Subscription Databases]

Each year millions of periodicals (magazines, journals, and newspapers) publish billions of articles. But you will need to locate only a few specific articles for your research project.

What exactly can you find in a periodical index?

Usually you find only citations to articles. A citation is like a pointer. It is the information needed to locate an article within a library - title of magazine, date of publication, and page number. An abstract may be added to the citation, especially in online versions.

Aren't all indexes basically the same?

Indexes differ mainly in the specific periodicals they include, not necessarily in the subjects they list or cover. Choose an index based on the type of periodicals in which you want to find articles.
