Research Guide for Conflict Resolution
Because Conflict Resolution is a field that overlaps with many other disciplines, there is no one database that covers all of its literature. Below are listed a few databases which may be useful, but the best way to pursue researching a topic is to consider which field concerns itself with your research question. Does it relate to business mediation, social conflict, international conflict, or another area?
Consider which fields would have researchers writing about your topic and then explore the databases and other research tools that relate to those fields. To assist you, some guides to related disciplines are linked to the column on the left.

A bibliography, in this context, is a book or electronic resource that lists primarily books and journal articles on a specific topic. A bibliography can be either a selective or exhaustive list of sources; it may just be a list of citations or could include annotations. Works included may be selected because of their publication date, or their importance, or their origin. Bibliographies are particularly useful when you need to do exhaustive research on your topic or if you need to find literature published during a period not covered by the electronic resources.
