The SAGE Glossary of the Social and Behavioral Sciences provides college and university students with a highly accessible, curriculum-driven reference work, both in print and on-line, defining the major terms needed to achieve fluency in the social and behavioral sciences. Comprehensive and inclusive, its interdisciplinary scope covers such varied fields as anthropology, communication and media studies, criminal justice, economics, education, geography, human services, management, political science, psychology, and sociology. In addition, while not a discipline, methodology is at the core of these fields and thus receives due and equal consideration. At the same time we strive to be comprehensive and broad in scope, we recognize a need to be compact, accessible, and affordable. Thus the work is organized in A-to-Z fashion and kept to a single volume of approximately 600 to 700 pages.

Key features
  • This work is offered in both print and electronic formats to maximize its accessibility.
  • Each of the 2,250 entries starts a term, followed by the discipline/s in which that term is most commonly used, a definition of 50 to 500 words, cross-references to related terms and/or to other terms used within the definition, and, where useful, a reference.  For terms with different meanings in different fields, multiple definitions are given.
  • Back matter includes a bibliography organized by discipline that includes full bibliographic details for references used in entries.
