Academic Search Complete
Recent issues of all 3 journals are indexed in Academic Search Complete. Copy and paste this search into one search box to see all articles:
(((JN "Development & Change")) OR (JN "Journal of Development Studies")) OR (JN "World Development")
In the remaining search boxes, add any keywords you'd like to use to narrow down.
If you need an article from: World Development, pre-1976 or Development & Change, pre-1998 or past 12 months, the library doesn't have it, so you'll need to complete an Interlibrary Loan request form to get it from another library.
Note that World Development articles from 1976-1995 are only available in print, downstairs in the library. The database will tell you to fill out interlibrary loan to get these, but we do have them.
