EconLit is a comprehensive, indexed bibliography with selected abstracts of the world's economic literature produced by the American Economic Association. It includes coverage of over 400 major journals as well as articles in collective volumes (essays, proceedings, etc.), books, book reviews, dissertations, and working papers licensed from the Cambridge University Press Abstracts of Working Papers in Economics. Over 99% of the articles are in English or include English summaries. Generally, all articles from all publications are indexed, including notes, communications, comments, replies, rejoinders, etc. Articles lacking author identifications or without economic content are omitted. Records in EconLit contain basic bibliographic data plus subject and geographic descriptors. Abstracts are included in records added to the database starting in 1987. Approximately 25% of records added between 1987 and 1989, and 50% of records added since December 1989 contain abstracts.
