Tips for finding articles

 

Online Databases:

  • Discovery cross-searches a large number of databases. Use the Advanced Search for the best results.
  • Proquest Central is similar to Discovery, searching across multiple databases.
  • Google Scholar is a convenient search tool but you need to set up your Google Scholar preferences to search effectively. When linked, Google Scholar will display Find It@UniMelb links next to articles that are available online. 

 The most relevant subject-specific databases and journals are listed below.  

 

 Use the BrowZine app to follow journals and get notifications on new issues and published articles. 

Music Theatre databases

Databases aggregate content from many journal titles, and can be an excellent place to conduct your searches. Databases like Google Scholar or Discovery, do not focus on a specific topic, and can return quite broad search results. The discipline specific databases listed below, will be much more likely to return relevant results for the study of Music Theatre.

The list below is in no way exhaustive, and more can be found by searching in our catalogue, or databases.

Music Theatre Journals

Journals are continuous publications issued regularly (daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly), and are the standard for scholarly communication. They can be published in print, microform and electronic formats.

Our collections include many journals relevant to the study of Music Theatre.

The list below is in no way exhaustive, and more can be found by searching in our catalogue, or databases. For comprehensive tips on searching for journal articles, please visit the Research Essentials guide.
