This unique reference work is intended to facilitate effective searches of electronic versions of The Philosopher's Index. It provides a standardized list of the subject descriptors assigned to each entry in the Index database, as well as numerous cross references to equivalent and more specific terms. It also provides a general overview of the content of the database, a summary of indexing policies, a list of the journals indexed, and a guide to the many abbreviations used. Also included is a standardized list of "Frequently Named Persons" as well as a useful section on "Hints for Effective Searching" of the database. To help researchers better understand the content of The Philosopher's Index database, this work examines a five year span of its content to assess the timeliness of the coverage, the prevalence of English language citations, and the approximate percentage of listings for which abstracts are provided
