The American Economic Association’s electronic bibliography, EconLit, indexes over 120 years of economics literature from around the world. Compiled and abstracted in an easily searchable format, EconLit is a comprehensive index of journal articles, books, book reviews, collective volume articles, working papers and dissertations.
EconLit has now added indexed records for journal articles from 1886-1968!
EconLit is available at libraries and on university Web sites throughout the world, licensed from information service providers, who provide search engines, links to libraries’ full-text subscriptions, and other enhancements to assist users in document retrieval. It is available as well to AEA members only through EconLit for Members.
