Looking for Journal Articles?

Given the interdisciplinary nature of sociology research, you may need to use multiple databases during your research. However, Sociological Abstracts is still the gold standard for searching the sociological literature, so be sure to start there.  If your needs are not met with this database, ask a librarian for additional suggestions specific to your research topic.

  • Sociological Abstracts  
    Sociological Abstracts abstracts and indexes the international literature in sociology and related disciplines in the social and behavioral sciences. The database provides abstracts of journal articles and citations to book reviews drawn from over 1,800+ serials publications, and also provides abstracts of books, book chapters, dissertations, and conference papers.
  • Criminal Justice Abstracts with Full Text  
    Criminal Justice Abstracts provides comprehensive coverage of the major journals in criminology and related disciplines, extensive coverage of books, and unparalleled access to reports from government and nongovernmental agencies.
  • GenderWatch
    A full text database of publications that focus on how gender impacts a broad spectrum of subject areas. A repository of an important historical perspective on the evolution of the women's movement and the changes in gender roles.
  • Urban Studies Abstracts
    Urban Studies Abstracts includes bibliographic records covering essential areas related to urban studies, including urban affairs, community development, urban history, and other areas of key relevance to the discipline.
