ASSIA: Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts is an indexing and abstracting tool covering health, social services, psychology, sociology, economics, politics, race relations and education. Updated monthly, ASSIA provides a comprehensive source of social science and health information for the practical and academic professional.
ASSIA contains records from over 500 journals published in 19 different countries.
ASSIA is designed to serve the information needs of the caring professions – whether the members of those professions are practitioners, researchers or students. It is unique in its focus on the practical problems of society and also in that it covers both sociology and psychology.
The core disciplines to support practice are covered in depth, and so central areas of coverage in ASSIA are:
- Social problems like poverty and overcrowding, abuse, crime and violence, disease and disability, mental illness and addiction, racism and sexism, inequality and discrimination.
- Social and psychological issues concerning drugs, gender, women and the family, education and employment, housing, migration, child and adolescent development, ageing, citizenship, ethnicity and nationality.
- Health care, therapy, nursing and midwifery: policy, professions and practices.
- The social services, including social work, welfare, counseling and probation, and the police and prison services.
