Below is a list of the most relevant database for finding materials on anti-racism and decolonization of social work. Here are some tips on searching databases for this content.
Most databases don't yet have reliable formal tagging specifically for anit-racism nor is there consistency among writers whether or not to use a hypen or not. The concept of "decolonization" is the same. Use keywords and variants (e.g. decolonize or decolonise) to maximize search results. You can also use an asterisk as a wildcard placeholder at the end of word stems (e.g. decoloni*) to capture word variants.
Examples of keywork searches:
(anti-racis* OR antiracis*) AND "social policy"
decoloni* AND indigenous
These database are very useful to finding relevant research. They can be searched using keywords and using the standardized terms that the database creators developed to describe the items in their databases. This table includes a list of relevant standardized terms from each database. These terms are typical across databases that use a standardized vocabulary to describe the contents of articles, books, and other items in the database.
