Index Islamicus Online is the international classified bibliography of publications in European languages on all aspects of Islam and the Muslim world. It contains more than 500,000 records that cover all the main Muslim areas of Asia and Africa, as well as Muslims living elsewhere, and their history, beliefs, societies, cultures, languages and literatures. This unique and valuable bibliography is now available to Oregon State students, faculty and staff.

Index Islamicus includes material published by Western scholars in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, specialist area- and subject-based areas, and by Muslims writing in European languages. Publications recorded are in the form of articles, books and reviews. 


More than 5,000 journals are surveyed for inclusion in the database, together with conference proceedings, monographs, multi-authored works and book reviews. Journals and books are indexed down to the article and chapter level. Newspapers, news magazines, and government or official publications are excluded.


The Index Islamicus classification scheme, which is uniquely and carefully geared to the field of Islamic Studies, allows one to quickly find all literature headed under a particular, broader subject area (such as Education, Philosophy, Shi’ism, Sudan, Palestine, Israel, as well as their subcategories).
