How to read a bibliography....

Books are listed with title, publisher and date, like this:
Adams, Kenneth (1991). Silently Seduced: When Parents Make their Children Partners Understanding Covert Incest. Deerfield Beach, FL: Health Communications, Inc.


Journal articles have an article title, journal name, volume, page numbers, and date, like this:
Weldon, E. V. (1990). Women who sexually abuse children. British Medical Journal, 300(6738), 1527-1528.

Sometimes, journal articles or abstracts (summaries of the article) are available on line, but most of the time, you have to subscribe to the journal. If you go to a college or university library, you can usually get to the articles for free through the library.

It's possible that some of the books may be carried by bigger bookstores like Amazon or Barnes & Nobel but these titles are pretty specialized and may be tough to find.

Hope that helps explain the differences.
