A key role FACT plays is to connect researchers and academics with resources
and information. We have provided a list of academic journals that focus on feminist
research, as well as links to sites and indexes which the researcher may find helpful.

All of our lists are arranged in alphabetical order, with a link to the site, as well
as a brief description (usually taken from a journal or site's information) about the
contents and usefulness.

If you have a website or journal you'd like us to list, please email us. We are pleased
to accommodate your requests, but please keep in mind that there may
be a delay as we investigate the site or journal and determine how to properly list
it.
