Studies on Women and Gender Abstracts

Studies on Women and Gender Abstracts (SWA) is an international abstracting service designed to meet the information needs of busy librarians and all those working, teaching, studying or researching into any of the main areas of women's studies.

Theoretical and empirical materials are abstracted with a focus on the following topic areas:
  • Education
  • Employment
  • Women in the family and community
  • Medicine and health
  • Female sex and gender role socialisation
  • Social policy
  • Social psychology of women
  • Female culture
  • Media treatment of women
  • Biography
  • Literary criticism
  • Historical studies
Published bi-monthly, each issue of abstracts gives the reader up-to-date news of developments within this field. All the major international journals and books are scanned and other original sources and cataloguing services regularly searched for appropriate items. Abstracts are prepared by an international team of experts, are non-evaluative in form and are accompanied by detailed bibliographical citations. An author and subject index appear in each issue to facilitate the rapid retrieval of relevant information. These are cumulated annually and bound in the final issue of each volume.

Studies on Women and Gender Abstracts (SWA) is now available in an easy-to-use, fully-searchable online database format and is available free to institutional subscribers to the print journal. The database comprises abstracts from the journal, dating back to 1995. Abstracts are linked, where possible, to full-text services. Details here.
