Project Muse ® provides full-text access to more than 320 scholarly journals in the arts and humanities; social sciences; and mathematics. Fields covered include literature and criticism; history; the visual and performing arts; cultural studies; education; political science; gender studies; economics; and many others.

The database allows keyword and Boolean searching across the full-text of all journals in the database, selected subsets of journal titles, or in just a single title. Tables of contents of articles and book reviews can be searched by author and title as well as by Library of Congress subject headings.

Full-text articles are provided in HTML format with linking among article bibliographies, citations, endnotes, author biographies, and illustrations. The list of citations resulting from a search may be e-mailed or exported directly into a citation management program (either EndNote or Refworks).


The Help option is available from the search screen and on each subsequent search results screen, but not when displaying individual articles.

For help using these indexes see: How do I find an article on my topic?
