Journal Articles

  • International Medieval Bibliography
    This is the most comprehensive and current bibliography of scholarship in medieval history. It includes articles in journals and miscellany volumes (conference proceedings, essay collections or Festschriften) published worldwide.
  • Feminae: Medieval Women and Gender Index
    Covers journal articles, book reviews, and essays in books about women, sexuality, and gender during the Middle Ages.
  • Arts & Humanities Search

  • Historical Abstracts
    An annotated reference guide to the history of the world (excluding the United States and Canada) from 1450 to the present. Includes journal articles, book reviews and dissertations.
