Where do you look when you look for scholarly full text environmentally related articles?

When it comes to researching in environmental articles, there’s a great resource you can’t miss. We recently added a new full text database to our environmental database collection.  It is Environment Complete by EBSCO.

Environment Complete offers deep coverage in almost all environmental topics, including applicable areas of agriculture, ecosystem ecology, energy, renewable energy sources, natural resources, marine & freshwater science, geography, pollution & waste management, environmental technology, environmental law, public policy, social impacts, urban planning, and more. Environment Complete contains more than 1,957,000 records from more than 1,700 domestic and international titles going back to the 1940s (including 1,125 active core titles) as well as more than 120 monographs. The database also contains full text for more than 680 journals, including many of the most used journals in the discipline, such as Environment (back to 1975), Ecologist, Conservation Biology, etc. Additionally, Environment Complete provides full text for 120 monographs, such as Encyclopedia of World Environmental History (3 volumes), Advances in Water Treatment & Environmental Management, etc.

I did a sample search in Environment Complete using key words “energy security”. It yielded 838 full text articles, which appear mostly in academic journals and magazines. You can continue to refine the search results by limiting to recent years, or only showing the articles covered in certain geography, such as United States or China.
