What is the Central Index?

The Central Index encompasses hundreds of millions of records of global or regional significance that are harvested from primary and secondary publishers and aggregators. The number of records is constantly growing as additional data sources are added.

The records include a mix of scholarly material – primarily articles and e-books – but also conference proceedings, newspaper articles, and more.
