This guide will help you locate library resources for Dr. Gaunder's research paper for Germany and Japan: Losers of World War II.

Searching for Articles in the Economist

The Economist is a weekly newspaper focusing on all aspects of international finance and economics.  Southwestern's electronic subscription in Academic Search Complete goes back to 1990 and our physical collection goes back to 1963. If you find a reference to an article published before 1990 in your research you will need to obtain a physical copy, either in bound periodicals or on microfilm.

NOTE: You can search The Economist online for articles; however, you will hit a paywall. Simply note the title of the article you wish to see and search for it in Academic Search Complete. 

1. Log into Academic Search Complete HERE.

2. Using the default Advanced Search Function, type in "The Economist" in the first search box, and choose "SO Journal Name" from the drop-down menu just to the right of the search box.

 

3. In the second search box, type in the name of your chosen country. Leave the second drop-down menu on the default setting. Then hit the "Search" icon on the right.

 

You can then browse full-text articles for your assignment. If you have any questions about performing one of these searches, come to the Information Desk on the first floor of the SLC to request assistance.
