Sage Journals

Sage Journals Online (SJO)  has strong content in many fields, including Public Administration, Criminal Justice, and Management and Organizational Studies.  If you search all SJO titles, articles most relevant to your search term will be displayed first.  However, if you would like to focus on one of the subsets listed above, then use the "Advanced Search" option.  From the "Advanced Search Screen" you can limit the search to:

1)  "Public Administration Journals". (Public Administration, Criminal Justice and Management and Organizational Studies are all sub-topics within "Social Sciences & Humanities".)  Look at the middle of the screen for the words "Search Within".  Select the Radio Button "Select from a list of disciplines".  A list of main subject categories will appear.  Click on the "Plus sign" next to the category "Social Sciences & Humanities".  A full list of subtopics will then open.

2)  A specific journal title.  In the search boxes area at the top of the screen, drop down the "All Fields" menu and select "Journal Name".
