These are the core databases for the criminal justice research literature. The two primary databases, Criminal Justice Abstracts and ProQuest Criminal Justice, are listed first. The remainder of the core databases are listed alphabetically. NOTE: You also may wish to review the box of "Additional Databases for the Criminal Justice Literature." These databases index a substantial volume literature relevant to the field of criminal justice.
The following research literature databases are not singularly focused on the discipline of criminal justice. However, they frequently contain relevant literature for this discipline, and frequenty the articles on criminal jusice related topics in these databases are NOT covered in the "core" criminal justice databases.
For a complete list of the UC Libraries' databases, please see the A-Z List of Databases.
