Anthropology Plus combines into one index the highly respected Anthropological Literature database from Harvard University and Anthropological Index from the Royal Anthropological Institute of the UK. Fields covered include social, cultural, physical, biological, and linguistic anthropology, archaeology, art history, ethnology, folklore, material culture, religion, and more.

Content types indexed include journal articles, reports, commentaries, edited works, and obituaries. All core anthropology periodicals are included, and so are many local and lesser-known journals. The majority of the database is in English, but it also includes indexing for articles in more than 50 languages.

This is the electronic continuation of the print publications Anthropological Index to Current Periodicals in the Library of the Royal Anthropological Institute and Anthropological Literature.
