~ Database Represents the Largest Full-Text Philosophy Collection Available ~

IPSWICH, Mass.January 30, 2015 — Access to high-quality, full-text philosophy content is a click away for researchers and academics with the release of The Philosopher’s Index with Full Text. EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has joined with The Philosopher’s Information Center to publish the first ever full-text philosophy database, which consists of 200 full-text journals covering all facets of philosophy.

According to Assistant Editor Anne Seshadri, Ph.D., The Philosopher’s Index with Full Text™ provides a unique and complete solution for research in philosophy, with the added benefit of instant access to full text. “Scholars get immediate access to the articles they are seeking, with the full text available within the citation, along with rich bibliographic records, complete and accurate citations, detailed abstracts by authors and quality indexing by philosophers. Nowhere else can researchers find all this in a single philosophy database.”

To help libraries of all types enhance their philosophy collections, The Philosopher’s Index with Full Text features journals that are international in scope and contain the topics in philosophy most researched and written about, including ethics, political philosophy, social philosophy, logic, metaphysics and epistemology, among others. It is comprised of 100 of the most esteemed journals in philosophy as well as 100 additional journals that will help even large research libraries offer a more comprehensive and well-rounded collection to their patrons. The database contains complete, full-text coverage of these 200 journals. Many are unique to this database, and there are plans to add deep backfiles of key journals, including The Journal of Philosophy.
