1. EBSCOhost is a multidisciplinary database for scholarly work; most items are full-text. (EBSCO Academic is available under Journals/News on the Library's home page.)

2. CIAO (Columbia International Affairs Online) provides reports and articles on International Affairs, including policy briefs, case studies, maps & country data. You'll find it under the Research Aids tab on the Library's home page. 

3. Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU Country Reports) provides data on politics, foreign trade, economy, including 2-year forecasts. (Find it under Research Aids on the Library's home page.)

Pro Tip

Too much or not quite on target? Try one of these:

  • Limit to Subject
  • Use " " around a phrase e.g. "human trafficking"
  • Change your date range
  • Limit to a type of source (reports, news, scholarly) as appropriate

Not as many articles as you expected?

  • Remove/change limits
  • Look at an article you like to see what Subject terms it uses and change your search terms.
  • Use synonyms, e.g. drones or "unmanned systems"
