Overview

The ultimate cross-disciplinary research tool, ProQuest Central brings together 30 of our most highly used databases to create the largest single academic research resource available today.

Researchers can choose to search individual databases for targeted research or search all at once to find relevant results and information from other disciplines. All this is available on the intuitive and powerful ProQuest platform. This allows cross-searching with other ProQuest business resources as well as creation of RSS feeds, content alerts, Smart Search, article linking, and much more. The platform recently received 5 out of 5 stars from the Charleston Advisor for interface and searchability.

As well as thousands of essential journals, ProQuest Central also contains more of the non-journal content that scholars tell us is vital to their academic research than any other resource, such as news, market information, dissertations and pre-print working papers.
