About E-Periodica

E-Periodica is ETH-Bibliothek's platform for digitised Swiss journals. The earliest journals on E-Periodica date back to the early 18th century. However, current issues are constantly added to the range.

All journals on the platform are freely accessible. Depending on the agreement with the individual publisher, there may be an embargo for more recent issues.

OCR offers support in Antiqua and Gothic script. The journals are accessed manually and information such as title and author recorded to enable the provision of meta-data. The individual articles can be downloaded as PDF files.

The E-Periodica holdings can be searched via ETH-Bibliothek's Knowledge Portal, the NEBIS recherche and swissbib.

The Swiss National Library is a cooperative partner of E-Periodica.
