Recommended Subject-focused Databases

Although anthropology-specific databases can be helpful for finding journals that are relevant to the disipline they do not include all the anthropological journals, book chapters, conference proceedings, etc within their index. It's also important to review the multidisciplinary databases for broader coverage.
