The Library has set up trial access to Political Science Complete. You can access this via the E-resources trials page at www.ed.ac.uk/is/databases-trials.
This major database from EBSCO provides extensive coverage of global political topics with a worldwide focus, reflecting the globalisation of contemporary political discourse. Covering top-ranked scholarly journals, many of which are unique to the product, Political Science Complete is a must-have for researchers in the field. The database offers full-text access to a huge range of material including nearly 340 full-text reference books and monographs and more than 44,000 full-text conference papers, which includes those from the International Political Science Association. Subject coverage includes comparative politics, humanitarian issues, international relations, law and legislation, non-governmental organisations and political theory.
For a full list of publications covered by this database see the Coverage List (pdf).
Trial access is available until 24th April 2015. We would welcome feedback on this database as this helps with making the decision on whether the resource should be considered for subscription or not.
