Core List of Journals for Women and Gender Studies

This core list of journals in women and gender studies serves as a tool for building women and gender studies collections. The serials provide a foundation for study and research from a feminist perspective within the humanities, sciences and social sciences.

The core list includes selected titles that are covered in three or more women and gender studies indexes, or that provide critical information for women and gender studies collection development. For a more comprehensive title list, please consult a periodicals directory such as Ulrich’s. Please consult title lists from full-text aggregators for information on their coverage of online content for individual titles.

The list includes titles currently being published and suitable for academic libraries. In addition to publishing information and a brief annotation, the entry for each serial title lists where the work is indexed, and the URL for the publisher’s site.

The Association of College & Research Libraries, Women & Gender Studies Section compiles this core list. The list is reviewed annually.
