Periodicals Index Online is an international multidisciplinary index to more than 6,000 scholarly and popular journals in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. For each periodical, it includes indexing for the complete run from its first issue through 1995 (or, if it ceased publication earlier, through its final issue). The majority of the periodicals are in English, but it also includes titles in more than 60 languages.

Periodicals Index Online contains only indexing and citations; it does not contain the full text of any articles. It simply allows researchers to quickly identify all the articles that have been published in their area of study. However, the full text of many of these periodicals is available in other library collections. Many can be found in Periodicals Archive Online.
