To the right is a list of useful databases in searching for the latest information on the UN Convention of the Law of the Sea or International Maritime Organization, mostly from specialist periodicals on international law, political science, or economic geography. Some databases are quite specialized while others are large aggregating databases such as ProQuest and JStor. They will require a subscription, for example, through the University of Hawaii.
Searches can use terms such as:
maritime, marine, convention, ocean, sea, international law, treaty, seabed, piracy, territorial, exclusion zone, fisheries, shipping
The glossary of terms and acronyms under the tab for Encyclopedias, Dictionaries, and Glossary also can be a good source of search terms, particularly for advanced searches.
