Japanese Studies: Articles

Finding English Language Articles

Finding research articles is not different from finding books in terms of searching strategies. In both cases you need to develop keywords to be able to search the UC Library Search, our many databases or search engines like Google Scholars. Keywords can be single words or phrases that are combine to narrow down your topic. You can combine a single word with a phrase, e.g., Japan AND “detective novels”  or Meiji AND novelists, or Ango Sakaguchi OR 坂口 安吾 AND “anime”.


Pro tip: 

Below is a selection of English language databases that you can use to start your research!
