ASelected Bibliography on Lesbian Health Research

Publication Details

This bibliography represents a compilation of research and other publications related to lesbian health. It includes references identified using the Medline and PsycLIT databases, as well as non-published material submitted to the committee. Although the bibliography is comprehensive, it is not exhaustive. Nonetheless, the committee believes that it is the most comprehensive and up-to-date bibliography currently available on lesbian health.

As an aid to the reader, references are organized into general categories. Thus, readers wishing to identify articles that cut across topics should check for them under multiple headings. Articles that do not fit into one of the specific topics (either because they cover many areas, or because they cover a unique or specific topic) are grouped together in the ''general" category.
