Periodicals Index Online (C19) from Chadwyck-Healey

Periodicals Index Online began as Periodicals Contents Index at Harvard University. It is an index to millions of articles published in over 4,600 periodicals in the humanities and social sciences from around the world. Articles from over 900 of these periodicals with nineteenth century content (1790-1919) have been indexed in C19 Index, allowing undergraduate, graduate, faculty and general researchers to quickly locate every article by a particular author or from a field of study and compare them alongside of articles in The Times newspaper via Palmer's Index, with original and reprinted articles in American magazines from American Periodicals Series, and with other official publications and books published in the century. For the first time, users will be able to compare records from indexed periodicals with parallel entries from the Wellesley Index in order to easily establish the authorship of articles that were unsigned or published under a pseudonym.

Results from Periodicals Index Online are displayed in the 'Periodicals' section on the Search Results display. There are also links from Periodicals Index Online records in C19 Index to full text from 79 journals within various JSTOR collections.
