The Oxford Research Encyclopedias (OREs) offer long-form overview articles written, peer-reviewed, and edited by leading scholars. The OREs cover both foundational and cutting-edge topics in order to develop, over time, an anchoring knowledge base for major areas of research across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.
Today, serious, quality research is challenged by the confounding proliferation of information and misinformation readily accessible online. The OREs draw on expert authors who are able to push beyond the basic facts to provide a researcher with a reliable understanding of an unfamiliar topic.
Substantive, peer-reviewed, and regularly updated, the Oxford Research Encyclopedias combine the speed and flexibility of digital with the rigorous standards of academic publishing. Multi-media features embedded in the articles, along with cross-referenced links to related content, will further expand the utility and scope of the ORE.
