Abstract: 
The Labour Studies Index is a searchable open-access index of recent publications in Canadian labour studies. It covers books, book chapters, journal articles, reviews, commissioned reports, and theses. As of October 2016, the Index offers 6534 citations of journal articles, books, book chapters, theses, and other literature.

Open access is a key criterion for what is included in the Index. The following three scholarly journals are indexed comprehensively: Labour/Le Travail (1976-, open access except for the current year), Just Labour. A Canadian Journal of Work and Society (2002-2014, open access), and Relations industrielles/Industrial Relations (1945- , open access since 1964 except for the current two years). Work has been completed on the first two journals, while the latter is still in the process of being indexed. Just Labour, published by York University’s Centre for Work and Society, appears to have been indexed previously only by Google Scholar.

All other publications or resources are indexed selectively with priority given to recency (i.e., since 2000). They include research (e.g., theses, dissertations) in institutional repositories, Canadian university presses (e.g., Athabasca), Canadian publishers (e.g., Fernwood), commercial academic publishers, commissioned reports (e.g., Statistics Canada, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives), and reviews.

The Index is compiled through the Zotero Group Library entitled Canadian Labour Studies Bibliography (link is external). Zotero is an open source, searchable, browser-based citation manager that downloads in snapshot style the details of items
