Oriental Studies: Key Bibliographical Tools: Arts and Humanities Citation Index

  • hands-on task | Publicly viewable

Bibliographical databases are good tools for locating journal articles, book reviews, collections of essays and conference proceedings because they allow you to keyword search thousands of journals and other sources simultaneously.
In this task we look at the Arts & Humanities Citation Index (AHCI) which covers over 1000 journals in the Arts and Humanities.

This task will give you a flavour of how the Arts and Humanities Citation Index might be used in your Oriental Studies research. You can try this task on your own, although it was designed to be done in a classroom with a teacher to support you.
