~ Comprehensive Subject Index with Scholarly Journals Added to Linguistic Offerings from EBSCO ~

IPSWICH, Mass. — December 11, 2018 EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has expanded its linguistics resources with the acquisition of Linguistics Abstracts Online from Wiley, a global publishing company specializing in academic publications for the past 200 years. Linguistics Abstracts Online is a bibliographic database providing high-quality, cover-to-cover indexing and abstracts from leading linguistics and language study journals. The database provides linguistics scholars with a broad range of materials for keeping up-to-date with emerging trends and important developments in the field.

Linguistics Abstracts Online includes more than 800 journals with some dating back to 1911 and thousands of records with subject headings created by linguistics experts. The resource will benefit those studying linguistics and literature, writing papers, preparing teaching materials, compiling bibliographies and checking references.

Materials in Linguistics Abstracts Online encompass the broad spectrum of linguistics and language study, including subject areas such as: applied linguistics, communication, computational linguistics, deaf studies and education, English language teaching, fluency disorders, language and cultures, phonetics and phonology, psychology, speech pathology, theoretical linguistics and many more.

Michael Laddin, Senior Vice President of Product Management for EBSCO Information Services, says Linguistics Abstracts Online will significantly enhance EBSCO’s subject indexes. "The acquisition of Linguistics Abstracts Online from Wiley allows EBSCO to offer a premier, expert index through which researchers can find the best, highly authoritative content. Linguistics Abstracts Online enables EBSCO to offer more resources in an important subject area to researchers around the globe."

Linguistics Abstracts Online is an exceptional complement to EBSCO's MLA International Bibliography, which dates back to the 1920s and contains millions of citations from journals and series, as well as book publishers. Subject indexes create a comprehensive and powerful research experience by enabling researchers to access the most relevant results with speed and efficiency. The work done by experts in the field to curate and classify materials and develop field-specific controlled vocabularies has tremendous value to librarians, faculty and students.
