Slavic Humanities Index 

The Slavic Humanities Index is a bibliographic database in the field of Central, Eastern, and South-Eastern European Studies. This comprehensive database provides access to important scholarly periodicals published in the region that until now had remained largely unindexed and, therefore, difficult to utilize in research. It includes publications from Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. The index offers a single point of access to bibliographic citations of articles, book reviews and other materials across different disciplines including: history, literature, philosophy, language, linguistics, ethnology, theatre and film studies, cultural studies, borderland studies, and regional studies. Presently, the database includes around 220 periodicals and offers basic and advanced search functions. It can be searched in vernacular languages or by using the Library of Congress and International transliteration systems.
