Sociological Abstracts

Alternative Titles
Soc Abs, Soc Abstracts

SocioFile, Socio File
ProQuest Sociological Abstracts
Description

Sociological Abstracts abstracts and indexes the international literature in sociology and related disciplines in the social and behavioral sciences. The database provides abstracts of journal articles and citations to book reviews drawn from over 1,800 serials publications, and also provides abstracts of books, book chapters, dissertations, and conference papers. Many records from key journals in sociology, added to the database since 2002, also include the references cited in the bibliography of the source article.

Each individual reference may also have links to an abstract and/or to other papers that cite that reference; these links increase the possibility of finding more potentially relevant articles. These references are linked both within Sociological Abstracts and across other social science databases available on ProQuest.

Updated monthly, with approximately 30,000 records added per year. (Description from the publisher's website.)

Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Division

Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies is the descriptor frequently used for the area covered by our Division in the library.  We collect materials from and/or about Eastern Europe, Mongolia, Modern Greece, Russia and all the Soviet successor states including those in Transcaucasia and Central Asia, in languages used by those countries.  The Division selects, orders, catalogs and maintains these materials.  We also select materials in West European languages about countries in our area of coverage, and they are cataloged elsewhere in the library. 

Ours is one of the country's largest such collections, one that is especially strong in languages, literatures, history, social sciences, art and bibliography.  The best-represented countries are Russia, Poland, the Yugoslav successor states (especially Bosnia and Hercegovina), and the Czech Republic/Slovakia.  Notable holdings include, in all formats, the Greek American experience, Russian revolutionary movements, Russian and East European dissident writings, modern Armenian history and literature, the Silver Age of Russian Literature, Southeast European travel literature, and serial publications of the East European academies.  A current priority is development of our Central Asian, Armenian and Modern Greek holdings.  Our acquisitions are mostly purchased, but we also receive books as gifts or on exchange with peer institutions in the U.S. and abroad.  The Slavic Division also participates in consortia and federal programs for resource creation, preservation, and acquisition.  

Information concerning our staff can be found on the Area Programs home page
