Planex Subject Guides

The Planex database covers all aspects of public and social policy and practice. We have produced a series of resource guides summarising how we can support academics, students and researchers in particular subject areas.


“MA Public Policy students at King’s College London need to find an appropriate database to use in their search for evidence as they begin their dissertations, and without doubt the best source has been Planex with its coverage of all the key policy issues facing both local and central government. Planex is a UK-produced database frequently ignored by researchers too often wedded to the major USA produced services which ignore vital information on UK issues from non journal sources.”

Alan Gomersall, Visiting Senior Research Fellow, King's College London


 "As a university lecturer I find it an efficient and easy way to access the latest literature on planning and planning-related topics. Through IDOX I have access not only to academic journals but also to reports and papers from professional practice and this is vital in a vocational discipline".
