The Philosophy Documentation Center provides e-publishing and digitization solutions for
academic publishers, professional societies, scholarly journals, and other organizations.
We can digitize and host complete collections of journals, book series, conference proceedings, newsletters,
and archives of any size. Each collection can be prepared for online delivery, long-term preservation, or both.
Since each project has its own requirements, we work with you to develop the solution that best meets
your needs. All work is done by a team that is thoroughly
familiar with the content and structure of humanities and social science publications of all types.
We offer a range of access options to meet different needs. Our goal is to
create a sustainable path to an electronic future for each publication, while also providing free access to as much information as
possible. Both username/password and IP-range authentication are available.

Discovery and Linking
All electronic collections hosted by PDC are covered by the major discovery services (EBSCO, OCLC, ProQuest) and are indexed by Google Scholar.
Bibliographic metadata is available to all search engines, and is provided to select indexing services and journal portals in several
countries. PDC supports OpenURL linking and integrates digital object identifiers (DOIs) into all journals it publishes.
PDC supports Cited-By Linking with CrossRef and
particilates in their CrossMark version identification service.
We understand that the income generated from publications or membership dues can be essential to maintaining professional activities such as
conferences, grants, and research stipends. We specialize in the development of sustainable online access arrangements that can help your
publication or organization meet these commitments while increasing access.
All digitization and electronic publishing work is done on site at PDC. Our technical work is supported by
Makrolog Content Management.
We host over 130 publications in several languages in our E-Collection,
offering searchable access to over 120,000 articles, reviews, and other documents. We also provide customized hosting support for other organizations or
projects whose missions are consistent with our own (example).
General information about our E-Collection is available in the following languages (PDF).
