What sources should I consult when preemption checking?
The library has a more extensive LibGuide discussing Preemption Checking, but here are some of the sources that often should be consulted when doing a preemption check (for a law-based paper):
- Lexis and Westlaw and Google Scholar for full text searching of law reviews and journals.
- A journal index, such as the Index to Legal Periodicals or Legal Trac --or the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals if your piece has an international or comparative scope.
- Google Scholar, EBSCO MegalFile, JSTOR, or other, more specific non-law journal databases (see the LibGuide for suggestions).
- LOLA (Biddle's library catalog), Franklin (Penn's main library catalog), OCLC Worldcat, and Google Books for books or book chapters
- BePress Digital Commons, CRL International Dissertations, Penn Scholarly Commons, ProQuest Dissertations and Theses for masters theses and PhD dissertations.
- SSRN and Google Scholar for working papers and conference papers
