Getting Started: need a few articles?

To find articles for your Women, Gender Sexuality Studies research projects, the following research databases are suggested:

  • Academic Search Premier
    A good starting point: articles on almost every topic. Tip: To limit just to scholarly journal articles, do a search, then click the "Academic Journals" link at the top of your results.
  • America History And Life
    Journal articles, dissertations, and book reviews, many in full text, relating to United States and Canadian history and prehistory, 1954-present.
  • CQ Researcher
    Well-documented full text overviews of current issues, including bibliographies and chronologies.
  • GenderWatch
    Reports and articles from magazines and scholarly journals concerning masculinity, feminism, homosexuality, and gender roles, 1970-present.
  • Google Scholar
    The same Google interface you know and love--but it searches only scholarly, academic information, rather than the whole Web.
  • JSTOR  
    Fulltext scholarly journals; including 30 core journals in Feminist and Womens Studies.
  • Project Muse  
    Scholarly journals and books in the humanities and social sciences published by university presses; searchable by journal issue, author, and keyword, 1996-present.
