Now consolidating with PhilPapers!

The Philosophy Research Index is an indexing database of bibliographic information on articles, books, reviews, dissertations, and other documents in philosophy. It uses the best available technology to increase bibliographic coverage of the known philosophical literature in several western languages. Coverage includes current and recent materials, as well as older literature back to the 15th century. The largest portion of this coverage is in English. Current listings and features include:

  • over 1.34 million bibliograpic records
  • 800 journals and series
  • coverage of materials in 30 languages
  • multiple search and browse options
  • facted search results, integrated time line
  • metasearch of all PDC resources
  • automatic translation function
  • save/export search results
  • direct links to JSTOR
  • OpenURL linking
  • monthly updates

In July 2014 the Philosophy Documentation Center partnered with the PhilPapers Foundation. As part of the arrangement, PRI will be incorporated into PhilPapers to bring the largest and most accessible research index to the philosophical community.
