Chinese Studies: Databases

What is a database?

Databases provide access to high-quality peer-reviewed journal articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, dissertations and other sources.

These databases have been especially chosen for this subject area.

When carrying out your research for a piece of work, you will need to search more than one database to find all of the journal articles relevant to your topic, as each database covers different journals.

The boxes below list a collection of databases that the University Library provides to help you identify key literature in all the areas of East Asian Studies.

Most of these tools are available only to University of Manchester staff and students. Many require you to enter your Central username and password when off-campus. You can obtain your username and password from the Library's computer cluster machines. Alternatively you can use the IT Account Manager.
