Great Resources: HeinOnline – Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals

This fifty-fourth installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.

heinonline-logoThe Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP) is a multilingual index to articles and book reviews in over 500 legal journals from around the world.  It is produced by the Berkeley Law Library at the University of California, Berkeley for the American Association of Law Libraries.  The IFLP is an excellent resource for anyone researching public or private international law, comparative or foreign law, or the law of jurisdictions other than the United States, the UK, Canada and Australia.  The IFLP also includes analysis of the contents of about 80 individually published collections of legal essays, Festschriften, Melanges, and congress reports each year.

The IFLP collection dates back to 1985 (with a digitized version of the entire print index dating back to 1960) and includes records covering more than 265,000 articles and over 31,000 book reviews.  It also contains links to the full text of the more than 34,000 articles and book reviews that are available in HeinOnline’s other collections.  The IFLP collection is fully searchable by keyword, title, country of publication, and many other access points.
