Philosophy documentation center collection

Provides full-text access to the contents of journals, book series, conference proceedings, and other publications in applied ethics, philosophy, religious studies, and related disciplines. Essentially this product brings together and makes accessible in one place, the contents of all titles distributed by the Philosophy Documentation Center. Titles subscribed by BU Libraries are full text accessible (retrospective to full text accessible or retrospective only full text accessible) unsubscribed titles are citation accessible only. The opening link defaults to a display page listing all titles available from the service. However, the resource is keyword searchable. And in "Advanced Search" mode (displayed only after a simple search has been run), title, text, author and abstract search options are available as well as a date range limiter. Dwarfed in coverage scope by the Philosopher's Index, this resource does have some unique content (though PI overlaps the majority of coverage and provides a more substantial amount). Though not a first consult resource, still worth consulting for the researcher requiring comprehensive results. Philosophy Documentation Center
