Social scientists from around the world have been hard at work and this has been duly noted in ProQuest’s International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS). With over 100,000 records added this year, IBSS is now over 3 million records strong!

So far this year, over 8,000 book records have been added, and more than 70 new journal titles are featured. The geographical diversity of new journals continue to strengthens IBSS’ reputation as a truly international resource.

New journals this year have been sourced from:

  • Africa: South Africa; Nigeria
  • Asia: Japan; India; Turkey
  • Europe: Spain; Italy; Germany; Romania; Poland; Portugal; Croatia; Switzerland; Serbia
  • Latin America: Argentina; Bolivia; Brazil; Colombia; Chile, Costa Rica; Cuba; Peru; Puerto Rico; Venezuela

IBSS is complemented by many full-text titles available in the Social Sciences Premium Collection, providing researchers with a single go-to-place to research today’s pressing global topics, like migration, human rights, democracy, aging, food crisis and so on.

A toast to the continued wealth of social science discourse and the next 3 million records!
