EBSCO Business Databases

Description: 

EBSCO is a company that provides Trent Library with various databases. There are 2 specific Business databases and some related databases available to us. The link to EBSCO Business Databases provides access to all these databases. At the opening screen you can choose which of these databases you wish to search. If you choose more databases you will find more results but they will likely be less specific/relevant.

  • Business Source Complete Database Description
  • Regional Business News 
  • Academic Search Elite Database Description
  • Political Science Complete Database Description
  • Public Affairs Index Database Description
  • Public Administration Abstracts Database Description

NOTE: If you wish to search only Business Source Complete, you may find the direct link to Business Source Complete more useful because it uses a search engine (interface) more suited to business topics.

Notes: 

Many articles are full text from the database. A Get It! Trent option also appears for all records.

Resource Type:

DeGruyter is a German academic publishing house. In 2011 DeGruyter acquired BEPress journals, access to the BEPress journals can now be done either through Scholars Portal (preferred) or directly through the DeGruyter site.

Notes: 
Stable URL: 

A stable url (or persistent link) is a link that connects a user to a particular item in a database or on the web.  

Via Scholars Portal:

1. There is a Permalink at the bottom of each record which is a stable url for that article.

If it doesn't already include the proxy information, add the proxy prefix to the beginning:

Example: http://web2.trentu.ca:2048/login?url=http://resolver.scholarsportal.info/resolve/10811680/v16i0001/49_trotcvpncoc2

2. Many journals in Scholars Portal Journals also use the DOI system to create a stable link.

To link to a particular article via DOI, look for the line that provides a doi and use it create a link.

Example:
DOI: 10.1080/10811680.2011.536498
Link: http://web2.trentu.ca:2048/login?url=http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/10811680.2011.536498

To ensure off-campus access, include the proxy prefix:
http://web2.trentu.ca:2048/login?url=

DeGruyter is also DOI compliant.

ERIC

Subject Area: 
Availability: 
Description: 

ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) provides free access to more than 1.2 million bibliographic records of journal articles and other education-related materials and, if available, includes links to full text. ERIC is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences (IES).

The ERIC collection includes bibliographic records (citations, abstracts, and other pertinent data) for more than 1.2 million items indexed since 1966, including:

  • journal articles
  • books
  • research syntheses
  • conference papers
  • technical reports
  • policy papers, and
  • other education-related materials

ERIC currently indexes more than 600 journals, the majority of which are indexed comprehensively — every article in each issue is included in ERIC. Some journals are indexed selectively — only those articles that are education-related are selected for indexing.

In addition, contributors have given ERIC permission to display more than 115,000 full-text materials in PDF format - at no charge. These materials are generally part of the recent "grey literature" such as conference papers and reports, rather than journal articles and books. Most materials published 2004 and forward include links to other sources, including publishers' Web sites. (from the website)

See "What's In ERIC?" for more details.

Notes: 

The ERIC database is available from various providers, as well as the public website. These providers recognize Trent users and include the Get It Trent! link to full text articles.

Some of the journals are available by subscription only and Trent subscribes to many of these.

Notes: 

Trent does not subscribe to the all HighWire Press e-journals; hence you may get results that include pay-per-view articles when you use the search engine. Please keep in mind that you have the option of ordering those articles through Trent's Interlibrary Loan system without a charge. Also, check our E-Journals A-Z to find out if we have access from another site.
