Learn about how Oxford Bibliographies are updated on the Update Program Page.
Sociology, the study of society and human behavior, is a highly active discipline which is constantly changing and expanding. Because of the broad, extensive nature of sociology, a vast amount of scholarship and research already exists besides the regular influx of new material.With advances in online searching and database technologies, researchers can easily access library catalogs, bibliographic indexes, and other lists that show thousands of resources that might also be useful to them. In this situation what is most needed is expert guidance. Oxford Bibliographies in Sociology is designed to provide just this sort of authoritative guidance. In contrast to print bibliographies and electronic indexes that simply list citations, this innovative online reference tool will combine the best features of a high-level encyclopedia and the best features of a traditional bibliography put together in a style that responds to the way people do research online.
