Once you have found a citation for a useful article in an index or database, where can you view the full text of the article?
Academic Search Complete, Economia y Negocios, Fuente Academica, Historical Abstracts, MedicLatina, and MLA International Bibliography are all EBSCOhost databases. They have the same basic search interface, so once you learn how to search one, you can easily search the others.
EBSCO Publishing has a YouTube channel with tutorials. Here's one on using the Advanced Search features:
"Periodicals" are ongoing publications that come out with new individual issues over time, such as People Weekly, The New York Times, or The Musical Quarterly. Each issue of a periodical contains unique articles, which can be identified by using indexes and databases. Periodicals can be generally classified as scholarly journals (also called "peer-reviewed") or non-scholarly. Non-scholarly periodicals include popular and journalistic sources--magazines or newspapers.
Scholarly journals like The Musical Quarterly, popular magazines like People Weekly, and newspapers like The New York Times, each have different editorial processes and it is important to know the clues that will help you distinguish one type of periodical from another so you can use the kinds of sources your professors require you to use for particular assignments. Below is a PDF with a chart that will help.
Look for Advanced Search options to limit your results to Spanish language. These databases don't have a primary focus on Spanish language or literature, but they all have some Spanish applicability, depending on your research topic.
