Digital Projects at the Institute

The Institute ensures that the best digital resources and scholarship in the field of Jesuit Studies are available in Open Access, for everyone, everywhere, and will continue that commitment with additional forthcoming projects. The Institute welcomes collaborative partners in the digital humanities.

 

The Portal to Jesuit Studies provides free, online access to a fully searchable collection of primary sources and scholarly publications in the field of Jesuit Studies. The Portal curates resources from different websites, making their contents all available in a single search engine. The Portal's editors collaborate with scholars, editors, archivists, and rightsholders to give informed direction to some of the richest primary sources and burgeoning scholarship in the field of Jesuit Studies.

The Jesuit Online Library allows users to search 14 Jesuit titles—nearly 100,000 pages, across more than 700 volumes—simultaneously or to browse single volumes individually. The collection includes books and journals in English, Spanish, Latin, and French. Searches can be refined by title, date, publication, or author. The Institute collaborates with rightsholders to make these titles available online at no cost to the users or publishers.

Available in Open Access at jesuitonlinebibliography.com in early February, the Jesuit Online Bibliography is a forthcoming database of bibliographical records on scholarship (books, chapters, articles, reviews, dissertations, and others materials) in the field of Jesuit Studies. The bibliography will be a collaborative resource between Jesuit research centers and archives as well as scholars in the field of Jesuit Studies. To learn more, please contact jesuitportal@bc.edu.

Begun in 2016, the Jesuit Historiography Online will eventually consist of more than 70 essays on a variety of topics and in a variety of disciplines associated with the history of the Society of Jesus. Essays will be updated and new essays added on a regular basis. The Institute supports the project as an Open Access resource.

The Institute provided Open Access for the first five years of the Journal of Jesuit Studies. During that time, this peer-reviewed quarterly dedicated to the study of Jesuit history was indexed by both SCOPUS and the Web of Science as monthly downloads increased from 500 to more than 4,000.
