This guide highlights library resources that support research and teaching in the Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies Department. For help with research strategies, general library questions, and resource selection, please contact Beth Lang, Librarian for WGSS Department.

Getting Started: find 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.
  • 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.
  • Sociological Abstracts  
      
    References to scholarly journal articles, dissertations, and conference papers on sociology and related disciplines, 1960-present.
