Political Science: Internet Resources

Quick Tips

Google's advanced search allows you to search by domain name (on bottom line of the advanced search form).

Entering .edu or .gov into this line will only return results from educational or US government sites, which tend to contain more reliable scholarly or factual information.

Google Scholar uses Google's search interface to find academic sources without the commercial aspects of plain Google.
