Women's Feature Service (WFS) offers custom-made dossiers to organisations, institutions policy makers and individuals. The dossiers, which consist of abstracts of WFS features and can be used for publication or for research purposes. Since January 1988, all features have been abstracted in English and put into the WFS database. Each abstract is classified by region (Anglophone and Francophone Africa, Latin America, Central America, South and South-East Asia, the Middle east and North Africa and the Caribbean), as well as by country. The abstracts are compiled into dossiers covering a variety of topics. These include rights, environment, health, community organisations, migration, violence, children, political participation, foreign debt and credit, organisation, population. Dossiers can cover all regions, or only selected ones.

The dossiers are ideally suited to projects or publications which need a broad-based approach to a specific topic. For example, a dossier on children would include abstracts on issues such as child abuse, child labour and exploitation, nutrition, education, child care, health care, maternal health and mortality, fertility rates. Most dossiers contain between 10 and 50 abstracts, and the number of abstracts determines the cost of the dossier. Entire features can be retrieved for an extra charge.
