The British Humanities Index is a database published by ProQuest that indexes journals, magazines, and newspapers published in Great Britain and other English-speaking countries.[1] The Oxford guide to library research described it as a "particularly good British source,"[2] stating that it had "headings of its own devising."[2] It covers more than 400 periodicals beginning in 1962.[1] Walford stated in 1985 that "BHI's title is something of a misnomer, since its c375 titles indexed include some 68 social science periodicals, plus a sprinkling of Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand titles."[3] A guide for scientific researchers advised "don't let the [BHI's] title put you off using this index; it has some excellent references to general scientific articles."[4]
