Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies: Find Articles

Women's Studies Databases

Other Useful Databases

Scholarly journal articles from many different disciplines will include articles that are useful for women's, gender, and sexuality studies researchers. The best place to search will depend on your topic.

Research topics in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality studies can be interdisciplinary, and sometimes it's hard to know where to start. In cases like these, you might want to start with the main Library search, Quest.

Depending on your topic, you might also want to search in a database covering just one discipline. For example, if you are examining women's voting patterns or the representation of LGBTQ+ individuals in national legislative bodies, you may want to search in the political science literature. If you're interested in the impact of conditional cash transfers on the educational achievement of women and girls, you may want to search in the economics literature. For research on household division of labor and gender dynamics, you may wish to look at the psychology or sociology literature.

Finding Journals

Find an article citation and wonder if Simpson Library has access to the journal?


Ready, D. D. (2010). Socioeconomic disadvantage, school attendance, and early cognitive development: The differential effects of school exposure. Sociology of Education, 83(4), 271-286.

Sociology of Education is the title of the journal in which this article was published. This article is published in Volume 83, Issue 4, from 2010.

You need to search the Journal Search using the title of the journal (Sociology of Education), not the title of the article.

Once you find the journal, you will need to see if which database includes the volume / year of the article you want to find.
