Research Starters from EBSCO Publishing
"Research Starters are topic overviews, relevant to key areas of academic study, including links to key articles in associated EBSCOhost databases. Research Starters follow an easy to use format. The topics correlate directly to courses taught at colleges and universities and provide students with authoritative, discipline-specific articles offering comprehensive overviews of important academic subject areas and topics. The databases aim to provide a gateway to resources needed for assignments, including quick access to key, related articles from EBSCOhost which have been hand-picked by subject-matter experts and scholars. Each Research Starters database initially consists of 500 topics with approximately 25 to 50 new topics added each year. Each database includes a collection of summary articles written by subject-matter experts exclusively for EBSCOhost - approximately 3,000 words each. Articles are also available in both HTML and PDF versions"
