Environmental Science, Policy, and Management: Articles

A guide to research resources for ESPM.

Top Research Databases

Use one or more of these databases to find articles, conference proceedings, reports, and other materials relevant to research in ESPM. If you are unsure which databases to use, please ask your librarian.

And here's a friendly reminder:

Start Your Search

Start Your Search isn't a substitute for specialized research databases. However, it can be a good tool for interdisciplinary topics, new topics, or searches for which you want results beyond journal articles (e.g., news and magazine articles, books, etc.). It can also search the full text of many ebooks.

Search Tips

Where's the PDF?

Once you've searched a database to find articles, use UC-eLinks to link to a PDF or html file if the full text is not immediately available. Each database is a bit different, but a general rule is: when you see  (UC-eLinks icon), click on it to view your article access options, which can range from online full text, to checking OskiCat for print, to an Interlibrary Loan request.

You can also use Citation Linker to get to UCeLinks and find full text from a full or partial citation.

For 2019-present Elsevier journal articles (as well as articles in other journals that the Library does not have subscriptions for), alternative access methods include choosing 'request this from the Library' from the UCeLinks menu and searching for open access copies using browser plugins like Unpaywall and Open Access Button.

Borrowing items not available at UC Berkeley

UCB Faculty, Staff, and Students:

UCB Faculty, Staff, and Grad Students only:

  • Research Library Cooperative Program (RLCP) Borrow directly from Stanford University and the University of Texas at Austin library collections. Items are generally received more quickly than going through IBS.
  • BAKER Delivery Service (fee-based) Request materials in the UC Berkeley library collection to be delivered to your office or e-mail address. BAKER will place hold, recall, search, and NRLF (storage) requests on your behalf, and, if authorized, will automatically refer qualifying requests to Interlibrary Borrowing Services.
