How to start?

What kind of information do you need:

1.) I need to find one specific article. Start by searching for the article on Google Scholar. You have to activate Library links in Google Scholar in order to reach the full text versions of articles in licensed databases, when out of Hanken's network.
Do not type in the full reference, article title and publication year will be enough. If you can't find the article this way, go to Hanna and check if the journal is available in Hanken databases.

2.) I need to browse articles from a specific journal. Start by searching for the journal in Hanna. There you will find the link to the database where the articles are available.

3.) I need to find articles on a specific topic. Choose the keywords that describe your topic the best and search in Hanna, Google Scholar or even better- in a specific article database. EBSCO Business Source Complete is a good database to start your searches, for example. You may test different keywords to get the best results.
