The Oxford Research Encyclopedia (ORE) project is one of the most ambitious reference projects that Oxford University Press has embarked upon. OREs are highly discoverable, peer-reviewed, online encyclopedias with essays planned, written, and reviewed by the world’s leading scholars and scientists, providing hundreds of in-depth articles on core topics in all of the major disciplines. Every month, new topics are added and current essays are updated, ensuring that users have the most up-to-date content at their fingertips. The ORE project combines the ease of access and speed of digital publishing with the standards of academic publishing. OREs:
  • Synthesize primary research in high-level interpretive overview articles;
  • Provide anchoring information to be used at the start of a research project;
  • Are developed collaboratively with the global community of experts in a discipline;
  • Are written and vetted by scholars for scholars and students;
  • Direct users to other relevant, trusted content.
Working with international communities of scholars across all fields of study, Oxford has developed new comprehensive collections of in-depth, peer-reviewed summaries on an ever-growing range of topics. While most content is restricted to subscribers, full-text articles of pre-subscription and preview OREs are freely available, as are the summaries in restricted subscriber content.
