About the E-Collection

Online Access to Scholarly Journals, Series, Conference Proceedings, and other Publications

The Philosophy Documentation Center’s E-Collection provides access to journals, book series, conference proceedings, and other publications in the humanities and social sciences. Coverage of most titles is complete – all issues, all volumes. We offer a range of access options, and special arrangements can be made with professional organizations for member access to bundles or single titles. Text is displayed in PDF or HTML formats. All text is fully searchable. PDC is the only online source for most titles.
