Announcement: New Bibliographic Database in Slavic and East European Studies

A new bibliographic database in the field of Slavic and East European Studies is now available. The Slavic Humanities Index is a cover-to-cover indexing tool encompassing important scholarly and cultural periodicals in the humanities of Central, Eastern, and South-eastern Europe. This interdisciplinary index includes bibliographic citations of articles in history, philosophy, literature, linguistics, cultural, borderland, regional studies, ethnology, and library and archival sciences. Thus, the database allows cross-cultural and cross-discipline searching. The periodicals indexed in the database are published in Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Macedonia, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine.

Indexing begins with 1994 and is up-to-date with the latest available issue. At the moment, the database includes approximately 100,000 records and in the following months more records will be added that will constitute around 160,000 records from 147 Slavic periodicals. This is an open-end project and in the future, more periodicals will be indexed in the database. The database can be searched in vernacular languages, in the Library of Congress and International transliteration systems. It will be updated weekly.
