Philosopher's Index change

Earlier this month the platform for The Philosopher’s Index changed to EBSCOhost. Same content, different interface.

The Philosopher's Index provides indexing and abstracts from books and journals of philosophy and related fields. It covers the areas of ethics, aesthetics, social philosophy, political philosophy, epistemology, and metaphysic logic as well as material on the philosophy of law, religion, science, history, education, and language.

The 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. Extensive indexing includes personal and proper names along with subject terms; there is also the capability to search for the authors of book reviews.
