The Central and Eastern European Online Library CEEOL is an important repository for publications on the humanities and social sciences from and about Eastern, Central and South East Europe.
CEEOL provides an international platform for the academic community. It enables publishers to reach new groups and a wider audience than traditional print distribution allows. In this way CEEOL helps spread the news of scientific accomplishments as well as reports on culture, art, politics and society beyond the barriers of language or politics.
The texts of the journals, ebooks and grey literature, (literature not available through the book trade), are available in full in their original languages, with abstracts or short descriptions in English. The full texts are searchable.
CEEOL brings together publications in more than 50 languages in one database and offers many options for research:
- The subject areas range from Economy to Fine and Performing Arts via Theology and Religion and are divided into subcategories. Once a category or subcategory is selected, the list of results can be filtered by language or country, using the tool on the right-hand side. Please note that using diacritics can influence search results.
- It is also possible to search by publisher, journal or ebook. These results can also be filtered by country or language.
- Depending on the type of resource, the list of results offers various other options for filtering. The type of publication is listed by each title, plus whether or not the source is available as a full text (Download PDF).
- The category of grey literature includes around 6400 documents from NGOs and research institutes, amongst others.
- CEEOL-digits is a collection of digitalised sources, arranged by subject. The digitalisation is largely done by CEEOL themselves and is a work in progress.
The University of Graz has licenced the entire CEEOL journal portfolio. The full texts of around 2500 journals, with over 750,000 articles are available, as well as 1900 Open Access ebooks. CEEOL is accessible from campus via unikat or DBIS, without a registration. Members of the university can also access the licenced content from outside the campus using a VPN.
Please make use of our online tutorials on unikat, literature research and reference management, as well as the courses that take place during the semester. For more information, please see the library’s course catalogue.
