The Bibliography Articoli italiani di periodici accademici (AIDA) contains more than 219,800 articles in the humanities from 1,388 Italian periodicals. Publications from the entire spectrum of the humanities, including peripheral disciplines, are covered. The collaboration of Italian librarians ensures that the journals evaluated provide a representative selection of the current literature in the humanities and all related fields. AIDA is not simply an extract from the IBZ. The titles of articles are sorted and compiled by an Italian-speaking editor. AIDA is therefore an ideal supplement to the IBZ.

Each entry includes information on author, title, subject (in German, English, Italian), journal title, subtitle (year of publication, volume, issue, page number), ISSN, publisher, box number of union catalogue and the Italian catalogue of journals, ZDB-ID, holdings of Italian libraries.

Please note: you may be prompted for a user password and login but if you just click “ok” it will let you into AIDA.
