PhilPapers philosophy database

University Libraries recently began a subscription to PhilPapers.

PhilPapers is a comprehensive index and bibliography of philosophy maintained by the community of philosophers. Using advanced trawling techniques and large scale crowdsourcing, PhilPapers monitors all sources of research content in philosophy, including journals, books, open access archives, and personal pages maintained by academics, and also hosts the largest open access archive in philosophy.

PhilPapers also operates under a unique subscription model: institutions in high-GDP countries, like the United States, that offer degrees in philosophy are asked to pay for subscriptions in order to get access to the content in PhilPapers, but otherwise the database’s content is open to all.

PhilPapers allows users to:
