Oxford Handbooks Online – Trial ended April 2, 2010

Oxford Handbooks Online contains content previously published in print as Oxford Handbooks, divided into 4 modules: Political Science, Philosophy, Religion, and Business & Management. The site sits on the Oxford Scholarship Online platform, and derives its functionality from that, while maintaining a separate branding and identity. The Handbooks contain in-depth, high-level articles by scholars at the top of their field in the majority of academic disciplines in which we publish, which provide a scholarly snapshot of a topic as well as offer original scholarly arguments.
