Guide for Human Rights and International Law: Databases

Different types of databases

​Full-text databases include full-text of the material, as well as references

Reference databases include references to articles, but not necessarily the articles themselves, which often must be retrieved elsewhere

Citation databases include information on citations between articles: who has cited what and how many citations have accumulated

Please note that most databases are combinations of these types. Some of the articles in the database can be read in full-text, some are available only as abstracts.
