How to Find Editorial Articles: Home

Editorials and Library Databases

Editorials refer to opinion articles written by senior editors of newspapers (and magazines), and they express the opinion of either the publisher, the owner, or the editorial board. Editorials often address current events and combine both fact and opinion, and are almost always unsigned. The page opposite the editorial page is called the "op-ed" page and contains signed articles by columnists. You can find editorial articles in databases like "Proquest US Newsstream," "Gale Onefile News," "Gale Opposing Viewpoints," and "Nexis Uni." More databases containing newspapers and magazines are available through Databases by Subject: Newspapers. Some databases that have comprehensive coverage also contain editorial articles, such as "Academic Search Complete." In the search interface, editorials are categorized under Document Type, which is embedded in the "Advanced Search" in related databases. Here are a few examples.
