Information on ethics can be found in the following databases:
For introductory/encyclopedia articles and pros & cons discussions:
For scholarly and non-scholarly articles:
- Academic OneFile (Gale)
- Ebook Central (ProQuest)
A search using just the term "ethics" will retrieve a large number of results. To narrow down the search results, try a more specific search term or multiple search terms. Some examples could include:
- "assisted suicide"
- ethics AND "assisted suicide"
- ethics AND euthanasia
- ethics AND "doctor-assisted suicide"
To find information on specific cases involving ethics, try different keywords and keywords combinations such as ethics AND "case study"; "assisted suicide" AND "case study"; "euthanasia" AND "case study"; ethics AND "doctor-assisted suicide" AND "case study".
You can find introductory information on many ethical issues and other controversial topics using the Opposing Viewpoints database. For example, a search for "assisted suicide" will provide an overview of the topic and links to various viewpoints, scholarly articles from academic journals, statistics, newspaper articles, and external websites.
