Willey, Susan
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v55 n2 p78-86 Sum 2000
Raises questions about the validity and reliability of doing research online via the proliferation of academic databases. Finds different versions of the Lexis-Nexis database have differing search capabilities. Argues that dependence on database research findings means dependence on decisions made by a few people who design search engines and decide which articles should be available online. (SR)
