Public Policy: Articles

This guide includes resources that can be useful for those seeking information in public policy.

Using These Resources

The resources to the right can be used to search for articles in this subject.

Looking for Full Text?

The databases to the right will often provide links to HTML or PDF copies of the articles they cite. However, there will be times when full text will not be available. In those cases, click on the Find It @ NU button. This will search through the library's other databases to see if full text is available through another resource.

If full text is not available online, search in NUsearch, the library's online catalog, for the name of the journal where the article was printed to see if the library has a print subscription. If the library has a print subscription of the journal, you can request a copy of the article you need here.
