  • One of the major indexes in the field of anthropology, the Anthropological Index is based on the periodical collection of the Royal Anthropological Institute in the Museum of Mankind Library in London. It is an international index covering more than 700 journals in all areas of anthropology.
  • The search interface is cumbersome and quite difficult to use. At CSLA use this resource only after trying one or more of these databases: Humanities Abstracts (for folklore); Sociology Abstracts and/or Social Sciences Abstracts (for cultural anthropology, medical anthropology, and ethnology).
  • Coverage: Late 1960s to the present.
