Behaving & Misbehaving: The Body in Early Modern Europe: Databases

IsisCB Explore

IsisCB Explore is a research tool for the history of science, whose core dataset comes from bibliographical citations in the Isis Bibliography of the History of Science. The IsisCB currently contains 40 years of citation data from 1974 to 2014.

The dataset is composed of two main types of records:

  • Citations, items from the bibliography that have been classified and indexed, and
  • Authorities, records that include both subject terms that classify citations as well as authors, publishers, and journals that have written and published those works.

IsisCB Explore blends a professionally curated database with social media tools, so that the community can play a more active role in building a tool that will cater to its needs.

User participation is encouraged. Please sign-in and provide comments to entries where you see errors and add further information where relevant. Suggest hyperlinks and other material that will be useful for fellow scholars.
