Sociological Abstracts is an essential database to search when doing sociology research. Also try ProQuest Sociology (link is below), which is a larger database that only partially overlaps with Sociological Abstracts.
ProQuest Sociology lets you search articles from over 240 academic journals in sociology and social work. This database is larger than Sociological Abstracts and will give you more search results. Be sure to try both Proquest Sociology and Sociological Abstracts.
This database lets you search for articles in the applied social sciences. If your topic is related to any of the following disciplines, consider trying ASSIA in addition to the main sociology databases.
Applied social sciences include: education, family studies, gerontology, health services, housing, mental health services, nursing, public health, social work, substance abuse
