PHILOSOPHY RESEARCH INDEX
A New Standard for Bibliographic Research in Philosophy
The Philosophy Research Index is an indexing database of bibliographic information on articles, books, reviews, dissertations, and other documents in philosophy. It uses the best available technology to increase bibliographic coverage of the known philosophical literature in several western languages. Coverage includes current and recent materials, as well as older literature back to the 15th century. The largest portion of this coverage is in English, but the databae contains listings of items in many other languages. Current listings and features include:
over one million bibliograpic records
800 journals and series
coverage of materials in 30 languages
multiple search and browse options
facted search results and integrated time line
save/export search results
automatic translation function
metasearch of our fulltext E-Collection and International Directory of Philosophy
direct links to JSTOR
The metasearch allows PRI users to search the fulltext of all 117,000+ documents in our fulltext E-Collection and all 35,000+ listings in our International Directory of Philosophy.
The translation function helps users combine all results into English, and social networking functionality facilitates information sharing. The database is OpenURL ready and an extended librarians' view is available for each citation.
Anyone can set up a free trial to PRI to test its functionality. Full access is provided on a subscription basis to institutions. Income from subscriptions helps us improve functionality and expand coverage. The goal is to build complete bibliographic coverage of all philosophical literature.
What PRI Currently Covers
As of May 2013 the database contains over 1.21 million bibliographic listings.
