Rollins doesn't have access to the perfect database to find journal articles in economics. Here are links to databases that include a lot of economics, business and public policy journal, magazine, and newspaper articles on relevant topics amongst a lot of other subjects.
These databses contain a lot of political science or public policy materials.
- Academic Search Premier
This is an excellent, interdisciplinary database that is always a good place to start.
- Business Source Complete
Provides access to journals and research reports in all disciplines of business.
- Columbia International Affairs Online
Includes the full text of working papers and briefs and some access to journal articles, books, foundation-funded research projects, and proceedings from conferences.
Working papers are not the same as scholarly peer-reviewed articles, but can be excellent sources of expert information.

- IDEAS from RePEc
From Research Papers in Economics, this open-access database is the largest bibliographic database dedicated to Economics and is available freely on the Internet.
- LexisNexis Academic

Newsstand is a collection of full-text newspapers, including the Orlando Sentinel, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, etc. Coverage is 1977-Present.
- Project Muse
Full text of scholarly journals in the arts and humanities, social sciences, and mathematics. Use the advanced search and limit your search by discipline to "Economics" or "Politics and Public Policy" for better results.
Google Scholar has all the power (and problems) of Google, but only searches the educational materials in Google. There are diamonds amongst the dirt out there, so it is worth searching. But don't be surprised if the fulltext is not available and you are asked to pay for content. Don't, we can get it for you free via Interlibrary Loan.
