Communication Science: Articles

human communication, media studies, public relations management


Communication and Mass Media Complete is your go-to dbase. However, click on "choose databases" and select other Ebsco databases such as Business Source Complete, Academic Search Premier, Health Source and so forth to search several resources simultaneously. Your selection of Ebsco databases will depend on your search topic.

Most of the listed databases provide full text, but many also contain abstracts and bibliographic references.

If the full-text of the article is not available from the database, make a note of the bibliographic reference and then use Find e-journals to see if the journal that the article was published in is available in electronic format in one of our other databases. Should the journal not be available electronically, use the library catalogue to request the article.

Subject Databases

Full text articles and references to articles on particular topics may be found using the subject databases.

Use Google Scholar with adjusted settings for Unisa journals across all databases.
