HIST 4245 : The Vietnam War

Best Journal Databases in History

SEARCH HINT:  Most databases use a truncation symbol--sometimes called a wild card--that you can use at the end of your keywords to pick up variant endings of that word.  In most databases, this truncation symbol is the asterisk  *

Use this at the end of a root word to pick up all the endings of the word, e.g., slave* will pick up slave, slaves, slavery, slaveholder, slaveowner, etc.

SEARCH HINT: Put quotation marks around phrases when searching in order to get the words in that order.  For example, "vietnam war"

Other Avenues to Articles

There are several other databases that you might search. I strongly recommend you search first in America: History and Life, but the following are other choices for you to find scholarly articles.
