The Cumulative Index for the American Journal of Comparative Law covers volumes 1 to 56 for the years 1952 to 2008. You may search this Index by author name (first or last name), article title (use any one key word), book reviewed and the book’s author (but search under the entry “Title”), volume number, article start page, or year. You may also search the special quadrennial supplement volumes published by the Journal beginning in 1978 (U.S. national reports to the International Congress of Comparative Law) in the same manner. Results will have the word Supp. and the volume number in the author column. Book Notices, Books Received, and Bulletins have not been indexed.
Search Hints: The most effective search is to enter all or part of one word in only one field, although you may enter information in more than one field if you retrieve too many articles. If you want a book author’s name for a book reviewed, enter the first or last name in the Title field. The reviewer’s name is in the theAuthor field. The most effective way to survey the many articles in the quadrennial supplement volumes is to type Supp in the author field. If you want to narrow your search of a supplement volume, enter only the volume number in the author field. (The volume numbers are 26, 30, 34, 38, 42, 46, 50, and 54 for the years 1978, 1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, and 2006). If you are not sure of the spelling of a name or foreign word, enter as much of the word as you know without use of * or ! or other universal symbols. Foreign words or names should be tried with and without diacritics, since the search engine distinguishes, e.g., a “u” from a “ü” or a “ue.”
This is a work in progress. There are some errors in the data fields that we will correct if you notify us. For corrections and suggestions please contact (to be decided), the Society’s Executive Assistant at the University of Connecticut School of Law. Professor David S. Clark originally created this database in the 1990s to assist Journal users to more easily find articles by author or title word search before the era of electronic journal archives. Ramakrishna S. Addanki debugged and improved this search engine and worked on the first version of the database up to the year 2000. María del Carmen Vivar Aguirre and Alexandre de Paula Oliveira subsequently improved the database’s accuracy and added information up to 2002. The Society was indebted to Willamette University for supporting this project. The Index is currently maintained by (to be decided).
