Social Science Reference Sources: A Practical Guide

Sampul Depan
Greenwood Publishing Group, 2000 - 495 halaman

The social sciences continue to generate vast amounts of research, which is typically published in scholarly monographs and journal articles. This research, in turn, is summarized in a wide range of reference sources, such as bibliographies, dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, and yearbooks. Now in its third edition, this essential guide provides entries for roughly 1,600 reference sources in the social sciences, including anthropology, business, economics, education, geography, history, law, political science, psychology, and sociology. Most titles published before 1980, which are listed in the second edition, have been excluded, while the present volume gives special attention to electronic resources, including more than 200 web sites.

The first part of the volume contains chapters on the social sciences in general, including discussions of available research tools. It also provides brief descriptions of the features and search methods of online vendors and reviews the specialized reference sources available in selected periodicals. The second part contains chapters on reference sources in particular social science disciplines. The first section of each chapter examines access to these sources through such tools as bibliographies, indexes, and abstracts, while the second looks at particular types of works, such as directories and encyclopedias. In most cases, entries are listed alphabetically under each heading and subheading, with full bibliographic information provided.
