Periodical Indexes in English

The following indexes focus on the social sciences and humanities. General English language indexes are not available for the following countries: Bangladesh, Burma, Japan, Cambodia, Korea, Nepal, Laos, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam. The Bibliography of Asian Studies, however, indexes Western language publications for all of Asia. Other web-based journal article indexes (available via the UH Manoa Library's gateway to databases) with substantive Asia coverage include: Expanded Academic Index, Academic Search Premier, ABI/Inform, Asian Business, ERIC, Public Affairs Information Service (PAIS), and LexisNexis Academic. F&S Index International (First Floor Reference Collection HC10 F752) is also strong for Asia citations, as is ingenta (formerly UnCover).
