Description:

Oxford Bibliographies Online (OBO) is an entirely new research tool for the social sciences and humanities. A scholar-curated library of discipline-based subject modules, OBO is designed to help busy researchers find reliable sources of information in half the time by directing them to exactly the right chapter, book, website, archive, or data set they need for their research. Each entry is a selective guided tour through the key literature on a topic, receives multiple peer-reviews as well as Editorial Board approval, and is designed to facilitate a research experience with no dead ends. All citations are linked through to your collection via OpenURL, full-text via DOIs, or to the web via links to OCLC, WorldCat, and Google Books, allowing users to locate quickly full-text content directly from OBO. An additional 50-75 articles to be added each year. New article topics are selected to ensure each subject area offers full and balanced coverage as determined by the Editor in Chief and Editorial Board. New topics are introduced based on scholarly feeback, editorial input, and research demand.

Bibliographic "topic guides" to selected resources in Islamic Studies and Philosophy. Provides an introduction to the specialized literature on major and minor topics within the two subjects.

The guides feature a selective list of bibliographic citations supported by direct recommendations about which sources to consult. Each topic guide has an editorial commentary to show how the cited sources are interrelated. The citations link to the sources in the UK Libraries' Get Text resource, to Google book summaries, and to WorldCat.org. All articles receive multiple peer reviews and editorial board vetting. Articles are regularly updated by their authors. In addition to updated articles, new topic guides are added on a regular schedule to expand the scope and extent of each subject.
