Best Databases to Use
This is not a comprehensive list. These are starting points for your research - don't rule out other non-social sciences databases! Leadership Studies is multidisciplinary and so your search needs to encompass a variety of subject areas.
QuickSearch combines results from many search tools for you to review in one list. Results come from the Wright State catalog and hundreds of library databases including all of our Ebscohost databases, JSTOR, the Web of Science, and others.
For more subject-specific journals, search "leadership" in the eJournals tab on Library Home Page or, for both physical and electronic journals, search "leadership" in the Library Catalog and change the second drop-down box to "Journals".
How can I access electronic journal articles?
You must be a current Wright State University student or employee to use the resources remotely. Access resources through the University Libraries' website and use your campus username (e.g. w012abc) and password to log in to your library account.
Once you are on the library's website, begin searching in QuickSearch or another database. If you find an article, book, or another resource but cannot find the full-text, Ask a Librarian for help finding access to the resource.
When determining whether to use a journal's article for your research, search the title of the journal and check the publication guidelines, about, mission, or vision.
When you read articles, it's helpful to think about them in the context of your research question, theory, and hypothesis. This worksheet is designed to help you start approaching articles in that way.
A literature review should help the reader understand the state of research leading up to your topic, not to provide an overview of individual articles. This worksheet is designed to help you start thinking in terms of how different sources contribute to understand the themes that influence your research.
