E-Periodica: the new platform for digitized Swiss journals
E-Periodica is the new platform for digitized Swiss journals, replacing its predecessor retro.seals.ch. It offers free access to the full texts of more than 400 journals from the 18th century to the present day. The topics include science and engineering, art and architecture, history, geography and religion. The service is constantly being expanded.
The platform stands out due to the following features:
- Rapid visual overview thanks to thumbnails
- Searches in the full texts (including Gothic type)
- Display of search results in a split view that combines hit list and image preview
- Smooth zoom down to dithering
- Structured access thanks to edited tables of contents
The journal articles are available for download as PDF and can be shared via social media services. E-Periodica behaves responsively and can also be used on mobile devices. Thanks to accessibility, users can have the articles read out loud to them.
