This guide is meant to be an introduction to some of the resources available at the Earl S. Richardson library. It is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather to serve as a starting point in your research. If you are unsure where to begin, try having a look at our Getting Started guide.
Academic Databases are one of the best places for finding peer reviewed journal articles that will aid you in your research. The Earl S. Richardson Library subscribes to hundreds of databases on your behalf, which you can browse on our A-Z Database list. A few of the databases most relevant to economics research have been highlighted below.
Book resources (with the exception of textbooks) tend to be more focused on specific topics, and give you a deeper dive into a narrower field of study. Several examples have been provided below.
APA stands for American Psychology Association, which publishes and maintains this style. We are currently in the 7th edition of APA, so you may here it referenced as APA7 or APA 7th Ed. APA is (somewhat predictably) used heavily in Psychology research, but it also is an extremely common format for social science subjects and some humanities.
