Searching for articles

Want to find literature on a certain subject? Don't know any titles yet? Then bibliographic databases are a good place to start.

The Bibliografie van de Nederlandse Taal- en Literatuurwetenschap (Bibliography of Dutch Language and Literature) contains Dutch, Flemish and foreign titles of books, articles, book chapters and reviews from 1940 to date (occasionally with links to full text). The BNTL is maintained by the Huygens Institute.

Articles in full text may be found in NARCIS, a national research database. This database also holds dissertations, datasets and information about organisations.

 A keyword search in MLA or in Linguistics and Language Behaviour Abstracts will bring up some journal articles, book chapters, working papers, book reviews etc. on Dutch language and linguistics. The icon 'Find it at Oxford' will link you to the full text if available. If no full text is available, make a note of the journal title and volume and try and locate the journal via SOLO.

Search articles or book chapters in one of the bibliographic databases in the left column. It may be wise to use all of the databases if you want to be comprehensive. Google  Scholar is popular for its articles in full text, but be aware that only electronically available publications are listed, so you may miss out on older materials that are available in print only.
