Oxford Research Encyclopedias










The Oxford Research Encyclopedias (OREs) offer long-form overview articles written, peer-reviewed, and edited by leading scholars. Each of the twenty-five distinct encyclopedias covers both foundational and current topics in order to develop, over time, a knowledge base for major areas of research across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.


Substantive, peer-reviewed, and regularly updated, the Oxford Research Encyclopedias combine the speed and flexibility of digital publishing with the rigorous standards of academic publishing. Multi-media features embedded in the articles, along with cross-referenced links to related content, will further expand the utility and scope of the research encyclopedia program.


Available ORE Disciplines are available here:

OREs run on a fiscal year term, July 1 through June 30. Lyrasis members may subscribe at any time during the year for a subscription prorated to the appropriate term.

Lyrasis has negotiated a central license with the best possible terms. Participating institutions placing new orders will be asked to agree to abide by the terms at that time. Accessibility documentation is available for this resource.
