The Philosopher's Index is a bibliographic database with informative, author-written abstracts covering scholarly research in all areas of philosophy. The literature covered goes back to 1940 and includes journal articles, books, book chapters such as contributions to an anthology, and book reviews.
The Philosopher's Index monitors over 550 journals from more than 40 countries and is updated quarterly. Extensive indexing includes personal and proper names along with subject terms; there is also the capability to search for the authors of book reviews.
JSTOR (www.jstor.org) is a not-for-profit organization with a dual mission to create and maintain a trusted archive of important scholarly journals, and to provide access to these journals as widely as possible. Content in JSTOR spans many disciplines, primarily in the humanities and social sciences.
Launched in 1995 to provide full-text access to all journals published by the Johns Hopkins University Press, it was later expanded to other presses and now publishes over 250 titles online. Disciplines covered include the humanities, social sciences, and mathematics.
Provides indexing and brief abstracts to articles and conference papers in the classics. All records are classified in a two-part system: ancient authors and texts, subjects and disciplines. The format of the bibliographical references conforms as closely as possible to that of the printed volumes.
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations.
