Non-law Journals

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of climate change law, your research may benefit from articles outside the world of legal periodicals. Try using these resources:

  • Google Scholar pulls results from a variety of databases and is often the best start for interdisciplinary research. Note that you may find better results on Google Scholar while on campus or connected to the university VPN.
  • Academic Search Premier is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary full-text database, with more than 12,000 periodicals and 4,700 peer-reviewed journals.
  • JSTOR is a full-text archive of over 1000 historical academic journals in the arts and sciences.

These databases exclusively focus on environmental studies:

Tips for Finding Specific Articles

If you already know the title of an article but aren't sure where to find it:

  1. Search the catalog for the article, both by article title and by the journal itself.
  2. Search for open access versions of the article via Google Scholar.
  3. Search specific databases that may not be fully linked with our catalog (see the list of databases in this guide).
  4. After running through these steps, request the article via interlibrary loan or reach out to a librarian.
