Academic Library

Welcome to the Library

Our online Academic Library is a unique and invaluable resource for researchers, academics, and policymakers around the world. It is the only centralized digital resource in existence to include 500+ peer-reviewed articles published since the early 2000s about the harms of pornography.

If you’re aware of research that should be added to our library, please let us know.

Browse the library

The library is organized into two main topics or sections: Child & Youth Development, and Adults & Broader Impacts. Each section contains specific topics or categories. There are two main ways to use the library – browsing and searching.

  • You can browse the entire library below, or narrow your browsing using the drop-down menus for topics and categories.
  • You can search for articles using hashtags, keyword terms, and date of publication as discussed further in Finding Research Articles.

The library is an ongoing work-in-progress. We regularly add new articles and research reports. If you wish to submit published articles, reports, or other documents for our consideration, please use the Research Submission Form.
