Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals is now on HeinOnline

The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP) has moved from the Ovid platform to HeinOnline on the Law Library Databases page. It used to be listed separately under “Foreign Legal Periodicals.” IFLP has the same content as before, but with much improved search capabilities. If you are looking for citations to articles about foreign countries or in foreign languages, the IFLP is a great starting point.

From the database description on HeinOnline:
The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals is the preeminent multilingual index to articles and book reviews appearing in more than 500 legal journals published worldwide. It provides in-depth coverage of public and private international law, comparative and foreign law, and the law of all jurisdictions other than the United States, the UK, Canada, and Australia. The IFLP also analyzes the contents of about eighty individually published collections of legal essays, Festschriften, Mélanges, and congress reports each year.
