B
Literature Review

For this study, the committee conducted an extensive review of the literature using Medline, PsycInfo, and the Social Science Citation Index. The committee did not limit itself to those documents identified through this search, but included other references as well. These searches initially yielded more than 6,000 citations. Given that not all of the relevant literature was published in national peer-reviewed journals, the committee developed an approach to use of the literature that is described in Chapter 1. Below is a listing of the terms used to search Medline, PsycInfo, and the Social Science Citation Index.

  • bisexuality or heterosexuality or homosexuality or homosexuality, male or homosexuality, female
