Articles are identified through specialized databases that index the contents of journals. Besides keyword searching, these databases normally provide assigned subject terms to increase searching precision. Keyword searching, using whatever terms occur to you, can be helpful in identifying a list of useful records whose subject terms you can then identify and search. The box to the right lists the most useful databases for finding articles relating to philosophy.
