PHIL240: Ethics: Databases

MCC Library Databases

These databases contain many publications for your Ethics assignments. You can limit the results to articles from peer-reviewed journals. Depending on the database, you do this initially or when you refine your search results.

If you also limit your search to full-text articles, you will only see results for which the full-text is immediately available.

See search tips and techniques from MCC Librarians and contact us if you'd like help.

When you search in academic databases including MCC Library OneSearch, keywords give you the best search results. Next time you search, instead of typing in a long phrase such as "all the research that shows evidence to prove there's no life on the moon,"  try keywords.

A better search about lunar life would use keywords and look like this:

"life on the moon" and research
