History and Social Science References for Scholars


Recommended Posts

There's no reference sticky at all in the Politics forum, and since we have no academic history or social science section to speak of I thought this might fit in best here. I was thinking that since there is a vast body of research in countless fields and subfields, members should start off by picking a well defined and supported area of history or social science scholarship and provide links to only open access general resources. Perhaps, if SFN ever spins off a separate section for social sciences, we can delve deeper and maybe draw on particular avenues of research.


Well, I'll start off with my area of interest.


Strategic Studies


Globalsecurity.org - Excellent open source strategic studies repository and portal.

Defenselink - DoD's information portal.

Jane's Intelligence Review

MIT SSP - Security Studies Program at MIT

DOAJ - Directory of Open Access Journals (Law & Political Science)

Dispatch Archive - Electronic archive of State Department's premier magazine

Economic and Political Weekly

Joint Force Quarterly - Check out the broader Joint Electronic Library

Military Review - Combined Arms Center's bimonthly pub

MIT Electronic Journal of Middle East Studies

Naval War College Review

RAND Review

Parameters - US Army War College quarterly

Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents


I'll continue to work on this one, and I'd definitely love to do one for public policy and operations research.
