This is a practitioner and professional database so you will not find a lot of academic content, but there is a huge amount of information on policy and good practice as well as employment law and case studies.
Remember you need to login even on campus - choose the Shibboleth option and University of Portsmouth.

**You should only use this database for your academic work. If you are employed, your company will need to have a separate corporate subscription should you wish to use this resource for commercial purposes**
