EBSCO Criminal Justice Database

Attention law abiding citizens! We have a new database!

Starting today, you can use EBSCO Criminal Justice Abstracts with Full Text. This new database contains over 200 full text trade magazines and journals. Topics covered include criminology, corrections, investigations, forensic science, substance abuse, and probation/parole.

Twin Cities Librarians decided to review ProQuest and EBSCO's criminal justice databases. In our review, we found EBSCO's Criminal Justice Abstracts with Full Text database to be superior for several reasons:
  • EBSCO has more full-text titles than ProQuest.
  • EBSCO searches yield higher numbers of relevant results.
  • Everyone prefers EBSCO's interface (scientific fact).
Starting today, you have access to EBSCO's Criminal Justice database from our Databases A-Z page and the Security Management, Police Science, and Public Safety Administration subject guide. We have discontinued our subscription to ProQuest Criminal Justice Periodicals.
