Wageningen UR Library offers two new databases available through the Ebsco host:

  • Communication & Mass Media Index
  • Gender Studies Database.

Communication & Mass Media Index is a combination of two databases: CommSearch and Mass Media Articles Index. Other journals in communication, mass media, and other closely-related fields of study are added to create a research and reference resource of a broad scope and depth of the communication discipline. Included are all important journals from the field, such as Communication Research, Communication Studies, Gazette and the International Journal of Advertising. Citation searching and Author Profiles (address information combined subjects and journals) are special features of this database.

The Gender Studies Database covers the full spectrum of gender-engaged scholarship. The scope is interdisciplinary and includes women’s studies, men’s studies, ethnic and health issues. The database indexes scholarly and popular publications, including journals, newsletters, books, book chapters, websites etc. This database includes almost 700.000 records with coverage spanning from 1972 and earlier to present. Search options in this database are limited: only index and keyword searching are available.
