Three centuries of the arts, humanities, and social sciences indexed coverage, from first issue to 1995 or ceased date, with access to a growing collection of over 18 million citations.
Periodicals Index Online (PIO) includes over 6,000 journals with around one million records from new journals added yearly. The scope is international, including journals in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and other Western languages. Over 30% of the content indexed is form non-English scholarly titles.
PIO enables users to search for articles by words or phrases in the titles, by author, and by journal title. The search can be restricted by the language of the article, the journal's subject, the year of publication, or a range of dates. Boolean operators can be used for more complex searches, and truncation can also be used to find variant forms of a word. Sophisticated post-search sorting and filtering are new features which support fast, convenient, and reliable results.
Bibliographic information can be searched separately for every journal indexed in PIO. In addition, researchers can access a list of issues for each journal and a table of contents for each issue.
