Reviews of Research and Book Reviews

Review materials are a good way to familiarize yourself with trends and key ideas in current sociology. These are usually annual or monthly cumulations of articles or citations to articles that give you a brief summary of research and findings.

Reference Materials and Bibliographies

Encyclopedias and bibliographies review the state of research in an area or on a topic and refer you to additional sources.  Encyclopedia entries often have a list of works cited at the end that point you to relevant readings while bibliographies list foundational citations on a given topic.
