August 2013 Editors' Pick, CHOICE

Oxford Bibliographies has been named an Editors' Pick from the August 2013 issue of CHOICE Reviews Online. To highlight the wide range of publications reviewed in Choice, each month Choice editors feature some noteworthy reviews from the current issue.

"Oxford Bibliographies Online represents a major departure from the exhaustive coverage of bibliographic databases that strive to include everything published within their scope. Instead, this peer-reviewed database comprises a series of subject modules with evaluative bibliographies and introductory essays offering highly selective lists of the most authoritative and significant research on a subject."
