Subject: [Air-l] Scholarly databases for internet studies?

I've just started my PhD and am investigating a topic a little outside my
usual field - which is illicit drug studies from a multidisciplinary
perspective (psych, sociology, epidemiology, public health, etc). I'm
looking into online forums where drugs are discussed - the working title is
currently "Exploring online drug discussion groups: the experiences and
perspectives of 'networked' recreational drug users"
I was wondering if there is a scholarly database specifically for internet
studies, or alternatively, what databases would you recommend I access when
trying to find literature pertaining to specifically to online forums (and
internet studies more generally). For example, I'm looking to review methods
and ethical approaches among a cross-section of studies where online forums
have been used as a data source to inform my own work - I've found material
by browsing relevant journals and picking up citations whilst reading more
materials, but it's not particularly systematic! 
Thanks in advance for your assistance,
