NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oxford University Press is excited to announce Oxford Handbooks Online (OHO) relaunched, expanding coverage from four to fourteen disciplines, on a new platform that will enable articles to publish immediately upon passing peer review, delivering new scholarship quickly, efficiently, and easily to scholars and researchers, providing them with the most current, authoritative coverage available anywhere.

"The relaunch of Oxford Handbooks Online breathes life into the online program, furthering Oxford's commitment to serve the academic community with the highest quality scholarship and innovative digital research tools," said Damon Zucca, Publisher, Scholarly Reference.  "The ability to publish online-only articles in response to new developments in research and the appointment of Editors in Chief and Editorial Boards in all 14 subject areas to oversee quality and peer-review will have a transformative effect on this resource. In addition, abstracts and keywords at a Handbook and article level, in combination with deep tagging and XML data, make it easier for users to find exactly the content they need, saving researchers valuable time.  Researchers can build a personal archive of articles, searches, citations, and preferences which can be shared using a host of integrated social media tools."

OHO is fully cross-searchable within the Oxford Index, a free discovery service, and featuring freely available abstracts at the Handbook and article level, Oxford Handbooks Online is more highly discoverable on the Open Web and offers seamless connections across Oxford's digital academic content—ensuring an authoritative research journey with expert guidance and no dead ends.
