Due to lockdowns and social distancing protocols writing that 3,000-word paper just got a whole lot harder, libraries are closed and academic journals and peer-reviewed material that is free are limited online. But don’t worry! We at PROWIBO have compiled a shortlist of databases that have a vast amount of journals, and e-books that you can access from the safety (& comfort) of your couch (or bed, we’re not judging).
Because of COVID-19 databases like JSTOR or libraries like the British Library have made their databases freely accessible to the public so that students, professors, academics and others can access the materials safely.
Take a look at our list of databases that have made their content FREE.
If you don’t see a database on here that you know has opened up its databases for the public, let us know so that we can add it!
