Browse our Philosophy Journals

General Research Databases

If you're not looking for a specific academic journal, you can search for your topic in these multi-disciplinary databases. They pull together content from a variety of subjects and usually contain a lot of full-text articles. This is a great place to start your research when you need a scholarly article on your topic.

You can view our databases by subject, type (images, news, streaming, reference, and more!), or alphabetically (if you know which database you want).

Suggested Databases for Religion & Philosophy

These resources can be found on the Library Home Page through the Research Databases and then under the Philosophy databases on that page. If you are not in the library you will be prompted for your Texas State username and password.
