Comprehensive Coverage of Social Sciences Research

Social sciences research has become increasingly interdisciplinary, creating a need for exhaustive coverage across political science, sociology, the applied social sciences, criminal justice, education, and other areas. ProQuest’s collections provide comprehensive, global indexing coverage of the scholarly literature in the social sciences, including full-text scholarly journals, many published outside of North America and in languages other than English, and key non-periodical sources such as dissertations and working papers.
