Selecting the best or most appropriate finding aid for identifying sources depends almost entirely on the context of your research project. There is no single database or web search interface that will work for every research context; instead, you'll need to match your specific research needs to a variety of options.
Depending on your topic and your angle, you may wish to search additional subject databases.
In most cases, you'll be better served by searching the subject databases above. However, if you have a topic that is very multidisciplinary, searching these electronic journal collections might be useful.
Depending on the database, there are a few strategies to find resources written in German:
Be aware of databases that auto correct German words to similar English words.
Google Scholar can help you find articles which have cited an article that you have found. Frequent citation is often (but not always!) a marker for a particularly influential scholarly work.
Step 1: When looking at search results, check for the 'Cited by X' link underneath each result. That will tell you how many subsequent articles (that Google Scholar is aware of) have cited this particular article or book.
Step 2: Click that link, and you will be taken to a new set of results, all of which have cited the original article, which will still be listed at the top of the page.
Try these strategies to become a better, more efficient searcher -- and help you find articles that you can actually use:
