Our community feedback survey

08/06/2020

POLLUX was created for the political science community and we need your input. Community feedback is the best way for us to know what is missing, what needs improvement and which areas are good. We prepared a short survey (10-15 minutes) to better understand the needs of the community and what our strengths and weaknesses are.

The survey is available till 28.06.2020. No personal data will be collected. The POLLUX team appreciates your support.

New in POLLUX: Search filter for electronic media

20/04/2020

You can filter your search results by electronic media. Printed media will not be displayed with this filter.

POLLUX with more content

27/03/2020

We have enormously expanded POLLUX in the segment of book publications, integrating the contents of neighbouring disciplines (e.g. economics, public law, contemporary history, sociology etc.). In this way we take into account the inter- or transdisciplinary working methods of the political science community. As a basis for the extension, we have filtered all relevant titles from many metadata sources. The extension is now being carried out step by step for journal publications, contributions to collective works and Open Access publications. Our aim is to provide you with preferably all the literature you need for your research.

In POLLUX you will no longer find only titles that you can either access directly electronically or that can be ordered via the delivery service Subito. Titles that are available in Germany and that you can order via the interlibrary loan service of your home library are now also displayed. If interlibrary loan is not available, you can contact the owning library directly.

Corona note: Please note that due to the Corona pandemic many libraries have been closed and the interlibrary loan service is therefore suspended at some libraries.
