The East-West Bibliography is an interactive
bibliography due to launch in January. Compiled with the help of SICS members who will contribute their
individual databases to create a comprehensive library of references on East-West scholarship,
this project will facilitate continuing interest in intercultural comparison.
Here are some of the planned functions for the bibliography:
Members submit their own bibliographies on
East-West studies in a text form (e.g., Endnote
"save as text" text).
The site will add these bibliographies to a master bibliography
The main bibliography will be searchable and readable on the web and downloadable in text form (in
Endnote "save as text" text).
Members will be able to click on a given citation and add their own annotation to the
The bibliography will then post comments, annotations, and all with the name and email of
the annotator (a la Amazon.com reviews).
What follows is a preliminary static bibliography intended to show the kinds of scholarship in
which SICS is interested.
