Some Sources for a Literature Search in Anthropology
This is NOT an exhaustive list of potential sources. It's a list of some recommended sources, following the search strategy discussed in chapter four of H. Russell Bernard's Research Methods in Anthropology.
All links open in new windows.
Annual Review of Anthropology is available prior to 2001 on JSTOR. To just search within the Annual Review of Anthropology, select Advanced Search, then on the Advanced Search page, scroll down, click the + sign next to anthropology, and the checkbox next to Annual Review of Anthropology.
More recent issues are available direct from Annual Reviews at http://arjournals.annualreviews.org/loi/anthro
Web of Science including the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) is available via the Schaffer Library collection of Databases & Indexes -- Anthropology. The link there to the SSCI takes you to the ISI Web of Knowledge home page. From there, you can follow these directions to search for a cited work or author -- follow the directions starting with step 2 under searching.
Russ Bernard doesn't mention this, but Google Scholar at http://scholar.google.com also allows you to see who has cited a work. Search for the work first, then follow the "Cited by..." link. This often gives a different set of results from a SSCI cited ref search, and is particularly useful for identifying unpublished documents that may cite a work. The method that Google uses to get its results is kept secret, though, so it's impossible to tell exactly what material is being searched, and it often misses many citations that are included in SSCI.
