It also includes a number of anthropological works on the adjacent geographical regions: Southwest Asia, Hindustan, Africa.
The present database allows to conduct the following types of work: alphabetical search for authors as well as the search by the predefined keywords for the works of a particular author. There is a list of keywords on geographical regions and countries, the subject of research and the historical period.
The data base contains information on most magazines that publish articles on anthropology, archaeology and ethnography of the Middle East and the adjacent regions.
Users can place the selected records in the Personal Publication Set and both view and print them in a brief or full view mode. Users can copy the selected records for academic purposes. However, users can not copy the complete database without its authors' permission.
