The International Philosophical Bibliography (IPB) has been published by the Institut Supérieur de Philosophie at the Université Catholique de Louvain since 1934. Our new database, created and now hosted by UCLouvain, includes references indexed since 1997 and remains a crucial tool for philosophical research.
Every year over 12,000 new references are added, including books, edited volumes, journal articles, contributions, and reviews, published in many languages. The IPB covers all fields of philosophy with a particular focus on the history of philosophy and continental philosophy. The bibliography is developed by specialists with privileged access to the content of many scholarly books and journals, notably through regular work with publishing houses. The tagged data is selected according to rigorous criteria and undergoes detailed checks to ensure it is both relevant and accurate.
The licence gives access to the IPB web interface created by Institut supérieur de philosophie and published by Louvain University Press. For more information on the bibliography and the interface, visit our institutional webpage: https://uclouvain.be/en/
