Professor Edward Murphy, Fall 2017

Use Indexes to Find Articles

Current Indexes

Prisma and HAPI Online are fully integrated-- Prisma offers key titles that are indexed in HAPI Online and incorporates HAPI indexing directly into the database. Both cover Hispanics in the United States.    


Indexes articles in more than 700 journals, most with a back file to the year 2002, with some back to the mid-nineties. More than 260 journals have full-text article access. The Prisma search interface is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

HAPI Online (Hispanic American Periodical Index)

Provides access to articles in journals published in Latin America, but also indexes the Latin America-related content of many major North American and European journals. Coverage from 1970 to the present. 

About a third of citations are linked to full-text outside of HAPI. Click through the Article Linker for full-text access from other sources.

Tip: HAPI assumes truncation. For example, “argentin” would return results including “argentina”, “argentine”, “argentinian”, etc.
