“PhilPapers uses advanced trawling techniques and large-scale crowd-sourcing to monitor all sources of research content in philosophy, including journals, books, personal pages, and open access archives. Our index currently includes 1,798,467 research books and articles. Over 5,000 individuals have contributed content to our index.” (Source)
“PhilPapers' index and its archive are integrated with the largest structured bibliography in the field. PhilPapers' structured bibliography organizes half a million entries into 5,111 topics at different levels of generality. Classification is maintained by a combination of automatic classification, crowd-sourcing, and curation work done by approximately 400 appointed academics.” (Source)
PhilPapers is an Open Access Archive, however, UNCC Atkins library recently became an institutional subscriber which allows our users to link out from the database to the library collection to find the full-text or, if the library does not have, request it through Inter-library Loan.
We invite you to start exploring this comprehensive database!
