If you want to do more general subject searching and explore around a topic use Bibliographic Databases (also known as Abstracting and Indexing Services).  See the 'Databases' tab for more information.

JSTOR contains the full-text of many of the classic journals, some as far back as the 1880s.

Hints and tips: searching for articles

When searching in databases think about your keywords, and synonyms for these words. 

Use truncation and Boolean operators.

Your search will develop over time, keep a note of what search terms you have used and what has / hasn't worked.
