Historical Abstracts is an exceptional resource that covers the history of the world (excluding the United States and Canada) from 1450 to the present, including world history, military history, women's history, history of education, and more - essential for libraries supporting upper-division and graduate research. This authoritative database provides indexing of more than 1,700 academic historical journals in over 40 languages back to 1955. History and social science researchers have used Historical Abstracts to discover significant and groundbreaking work for more than 50 years. No other history research tool matches its scholarly standards or comprehensive coverage. In 2006, Historical Abstracts began adding retrospective coverage for the most important historical journals in JSTOR. By project?s end, coverage for these journals will extend back to the late-19th century.
Electronic edition of the print editions of Historical Abstracts, Part A & B; coverage excludes the United States and Canada (see entry for America: History & Life)
