Scholarly Articles

The databases listed below contain scholarship from many different disciplines, including Classical Studies. You can also consult our list of databases and other resources by subject. Keep in mind:

  • Project MUSE contains journal articles from roughly 2000 - present.
  • JSTOR's coverage for journal articles goes back much further, so pay attention to the date. The coverage typically does not include the most recent 5 years.
  • Both databases also contain e-books.
