The new IBSS Blog

Welcome the International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS) team to the Social Science blogosphere!

The new IBSS Blog will look at topical events through the lens of Social Science research and help provide a new route into the wealth of information that IBSS provides.

Or as they put it …

will provide a place where social scientists can examine topical issues and explore how material available on IBSS can deepen understanding of these issues. The blog also aims to highlight some of IBSS’s hidden treasures, thus showing users how to get more out of using the database.

The new blog will supplement the existing IBSS INFO newsletter, which includes a profile of our very own Debra Hiom, who describes IBSS as:

a key resource for users within the Intute database as well as a source of information for the subject editors of Intute: Social Sciences

IBSS is an essential tool for Social Science researchers and includes over two million bibliographic references to journal articles, books, reviews and selected chapters dating back to 1951.

If you would like to find out more about IBSS, I interviewed Tom Carter, Assistant Manger of IBBS for our podcast back in 2006.


Intute: Social Sciences features more Internet resources in the area of Research Tools.
