Slavonic Studies


With the Slavistik-Portal the Specialised Information Service Slavonic Studies provides a research tool for specialist research that bundles various modules.

Research – The Search in Slavic Databases, Bibliographies and Catalogues of the Slavistik-Portal covers a search space of more than 40 data sources providing subject-related information on Slavonic studies. It's estimated that the entire search area comprises approximately 5 to 10 million bibliographic units.

New acquisitions – Recently acquired monographs can be viewed in the Slavistik-Portal within the New acquisitions Slavistics. Journal articles which appear in the top 500 most important Slavonic periodicals can be found in the module New Publications OLC Slavistics. Both new acquisition services are available as RSS-feed.

Journals – In the Slavistik-Portal our electronic journals are provided via the Electronic Journals Library (EZB) Slavistics, as well as the most important print journals related to Slavonic Studies.

Journal Content Service
The database Online Contents Slavistics (OLC) opens up the content of Slavonic journals. The subject-specific section of the OLC is accessible free of charge for all institutions of science and higher education in Germany.

Registered users of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin can use the entire database within the library as well via Remote Access.

Databases – Please use the Slavistik-Portal to register online for access to the Universitetskaja biblioteka database as part of our services for highly advanced Slavonic Research.

The Database Info System (DBIS) Slavistics provides an overview of the relevant electronic databases.

The Subject Gateway Slavistics (Slavistics Guide) covers relevant online resources. All resources are indexed according to bibliographic and librarian standards (Dublin Core, Dewey Decimal Classification, Basisklassifikation, subject headings). The newest online sources are available as RSS-Feed.

In the Databases section you can also research Subject bibliographies Slavistics within the bibliographic metadata of the most important German-language bibliographies and subject-related regional bibliographies in the field of Slavonic Studies.

The Slavistik-Portal is primarily aimed at scholars and students but it is also useful for teachers, translators, journalists, cultural managers and anyone interested in Slavonic studies, Slavonic languages and literature as well as Slavonic folklore.

We also recommend using the StaBiKat and stabikat+ for research.
