Jump to Comments



Slavic Humanities Index
[Toronto, Ontario] : Slavus, [2013?]-

We would like to bring to your attention the Slavic Humanities Index, a fairly new bibliographic database in the field of Central, Eastern, and South-Eastern European Studies. It provides access to important scholarly periodicals published in the region that until recently had remained largely unindexed. It includes publications from Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. Presently, the Slavic Humanities Index includes 233,006 records from 11,263 periodicals.

The index offers access to bibliographic citations of articles, book reviews and other materials across different disciplines including: history, literature, philosophy, language, linguistics, ethnology, theater and film studies, cultural studies, borderland studies, and regional studies. In addition to indexing,  the database will soon include full text articles from periodicals published in countries like Poland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Russia and possibly others.

The database offers basic and advanced search functionality. One can search by keyword, author, title, periodical title, and publication subject (Library of Congress Subject Headings). Every record is available in a vernacular language and transliterated using the Library of Congress and ISO-9 transliteration systems, as there are three sets of data. The database can be also searched by subject headings and personal name authority headings.
