Encyclopædia Iranica Online Now Freely Accessible at Brill

From a Brill Announcement:

The Ehsan Yarshater Center for Iranian Studies at Columbia University, New York, and Brill are delighted to announce that the Encyclopædia Iranica Online is now freely accessible at Brill’s Reference Works Platform. Encyclopædia Iranica is the comprehensive academic reference work dedicated to the study of Iranian civilization in the Middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Indian subcontinent.

This new online version of the Encyclopædia Iranica offers corrected and updated older content as well as entirely new entries from the printed fascicles XVI/4, 5, and 6 that were already published by Brill. New articles will be added at regular intervals.

“The staff of the Yarshater Center appreciate Brill’s extraordinary efforts to make this new website a reality, and we look forward to working with our partners at Brill as we continue to expand and improve the content of the Encyclopædia Iranica,” says Elton Daniel, Editor-in-Chief of Encyclopædia Iranica.
