Business Associations Research Guide: Journals

Great Tools For Specialized Journals Research

To search for articles on business organizations topics in all types of law journals, search by keywords such as:
  • Business Enterprises
  • Closely Held Corporations
  • Corporate Law
  • Corporations
  • Limited Partnerships
  • Limited Liability Partnerships
  • Publicly Held Corporations


Tools for Finding Articles

These indexing tools expand your scope beyond the full-text article databases. If you need assistance locating the full-text of the articles you discover, ask at the Reference Desk.

Tips: To do a comprehensive search of the journal literature on your topic, you must use journal indexes. The full-text journal databases on Lexis and Westlaw do not contain all of the law journals published, and, for those that are included, the starting date of coverage is rarely volume 1.

These journal indexes, in contrast, include virtually all legal journals from volume 1.

Tools for Finding Full-Text Articles
