Extensive in scope, this bibliographical database provides high-quality indexing and abstracting for journals encompassing the broad spectrum of sociological study. The database features millions of records with subject headings from a sociological thesaurus designed by subject experts and expert lexicographers.

Core Coverage Journals in all Related Core Disciplines

SocINDEX offers comprehensive coverage of sociology, encompassing all sub-disciplines and closely related areas of study. It contains informative abstracts for core coverage journals dating as far back as 1895 and provides data mined from priority coverage journals and selective coverage journals. Complete with extensive indexing for books, monographs, conference papers and other non-periodical content sources, the database also includes searchable cited references.

Profiles of the Experts

SocINDEX features nearly 26,000 author profiles covering the most prolific, most cited, and most frequently searched for authors in the database. Each profile includes biographical data and bibliographic information, which together allow users to quickly ascertain an author's areas of expertise and academic/professional focus. All author profiles are updated on a routine basis as new information about each author becomes available.
