What is the Philosophy Documentation Center?

The Philosophy Documentation Center is a non-profit publisher and resource center that supports continuing work in core areas of the humanities and social sciences. Its mission is to increase access to the widest possible array of scholarly materials in these areas in a fair and sustainable manner. It was established at Bowling Green State University in Ohio in 1966 to manage the production of specialized reference works in philosophy. Since then its activities have expanded to include the publication and distribution of scholarly journals, conference proceedings, reference works, databases, and other materials in applied ethics, philosophy, religious studies, and related fields. It also provides a variety of membership services for professional associations in these fields. Available services include digitization of journals, books series, and archival collections; budget planning; digital workflow management; secure hosting; and support for a range of both institutional and individual online access options. The PDC has been located in Charlottesville, Virginia since 2001. More information about PDC is available on Wikipedia.
