Help Exploring Possible Research Topics

Hold your mouse over each resource to read a description.
Note that resources with an icon which looks like a combination lock are available to current members of the Iona community only. If you click on any limited access resources from off campus, a box will pop up asking for your Iona username and password.


Here are just a few examples of  online political science reference books. These resources may also be used to explore possible topics as well as provide background information on already chosen topics. If you are off-campus, a box will pop up asking you to input your Iona username and password (the same information you use when signing in to computers on campus).
