Public policy

A guide to resources relevant to Public Policy at the University of Melbourne Library

Finding journal articles

The library subscribes to many databases. These databases index journal articles, book chapters, conferences and theses. In many cases, journal articles are electronically available in full text, while some may be in hard copy format only (check the catalogue under the Journal's title).

Below is a list of databases which will be useful for searching for topics associated with this subject. Access these databases via A-Z eJournals and Databases or by clicking the links below. You will generally need to login with your unimelb login and password as most of the Library subscriptions are only accessible by students and staff members.

Journals relating to public policy

Below is a list of journals which cover themes in public policy and public administration. They can be found in the catalogue under their titles, or by searching for the subject headings Policy sciences – Periodicals and Public administration - Periodicals.  The catalogue will list the print holdings, and in some cases, will also link to electronic subscriptions. However, it would be prudent to also check for electronic holdings in the A-Z of journals on the Library homepage.
