Connect with ProQuest
Periodicals Archive Online connects researchers with a rich digital archive of leading international journals in the humanities and social sciences, spanning more than two centuries of content.
Over 750 historically respected journals are provided from volume 1, issue 1, with titles selected by an expert editorial team. Journals are only considered for inclusion if the backfile is predominantly unavailable through other online sources.
For libraries, Periodicals Archive Online can save up to 1.8 miles of shelving space and provide permanent access to a vast information repository. For students and scholars, this resource can be used to survey comprehensively the history of scholarship in a particular field.
Users can pinpoint articles via precision search, or browse individual issues as if consulting the originals; each issue is digitized from cover to cover. Cross-searching this content on ProQuest with historical newspapers and other archives can open up new avenues of research.
Rarity of source material means that there will be some gaps in the collection.
