Gender Studies

A guide to resources relevant to Gender Studies at the University of Melbourne Library

Finding journal articles

The library subscribes to many databases. These databases index journal articles, book chapters, conferences and theses. In many cases, journal articles are electronically available in full text, while some may be in hard copy format only (check the catalogue under the Journal's title).

Below is a list of databases which will be useful for searching for topics associated with this subject. Access these databases via A-Z eJournals and Databases or by clicking the links below. You will generally need to login with your unimelb login and password as most of the Library subscriptions are only accessible by students and staff members.

Multidisciplinary databases

These large multi-disciplinary databases allow you to search across a large amount of journals, incuding humanities and social sciences. They often produce large amounts of results but can give you good coverage of research, including perspectives from other disciplines.
