Political Science: Recent Newspapers

Most newspapers are now available online.  Newspapers began to be created online in the early 1980s and many major newspapers, including the New York Times, The Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and the Philadelphia Inquirer go back to that time.  Many newspapers can be quickly searched using Summon.  Below find a search widget allowing you to search the newspapers found in the NexisUni and ProQuest databases.  There is also a link to the e-Journal Portal, which allows you to search inside a specific newspaper.

Search Summon for Newspapers

When you get your full results screen (scroll down) , look to the left hand side of the screen and you will see  many options for limiting results, like date and subject.

E-Journal Portal

The E-Journal portal is used to find what electronic periodicals  are available through Connelly Library.  It includes both subscribed and open access periodicals.  It includes periodicals of all types:  Journals, Magazines and Newspapers.  

  • You can search by periodical title, words in periodical title or ISSN number
  • You can also browse periodicals by TITLE or SUBJECT

  • E-Journal Portal is not used to search a topic by subject - for that you need to use an index such as Summon or a subject specific database. However you can search within a particular periodical.  So you can search on a newspaper title and then search within the newspaper.  This search uses the Summon search.
  • You CAN  search specific articles by DOI or PubMed ID (PMID) Number

We have a guide showing in more detail how to use the E-Journal Portal
