Other guides for Social Science related subjects

Your Subject Guide

This guide is designed as a starting point for exploring research about Social Science related disciplines. In each of the tabs, you'll find a variety of information resources which have been selected as a good starting point for research in that area. In addition to these, there are thousands of other books, journals, research articles, and videos that are available to you via the following links:

  • Discover
    Discover is your academic search engine, which searches over 90% of resources available from Leeds Beckett Library. These resources include books, eBooks and most electronic journals and databases. Discover is a great place to start your research.
  • Databases
    Databases are tools, often focused on a specific subject area or profession, which allow you to search for high quality information. You can use databases to find research articles.
  • Journals A-Z
    Journals are published on a regular basis e.g. weekly, monthly or quarterly and as such provide a good source of up to date information. Journals contain more specialised information about subjects than books, so you will need to use them as your academic interests develop. Most of your journals are available online on or off campus.
