Sociology: Journals & Databases

Recommended Databases for Sociology

Indexing & Abstracting Databases

Help you identify citations for articles from journals, magazines, newspapers, chapters within books, conference papers, dissertations, and more. Many of these include FIND TEXT, a feature that will tell you if the article is available online from another database or if you will have to request the article using InterLibrary Loan.

Full-text Databases

Offer one-stop shopping for complete text of an article, but sometimes don't include statistical tables, charts, graphs, illustrations, and photos.
