CiNii (Scholarly and Academic Information Navigator, pronounced like "sigh-knee") is a database for information on academic articles published in academic society journals or university research bulletins, and for articles included in the National Diet Library's Japanese Periodicals Index Database.
This combines content previously available in its other databases, such as MagazinePLUS. It indexes journals published in the Meiji, Taishō and early Shōwa periods, as well as minor journals that were published in local prefectures and cities.
This database is one of several major journal index databases available for Japanese journals. It is the only one that provides an index of journal articles published in the Meiji, Taishō, and early Shōwa periods to the present. It also contains important local journals that were published in prefectures and cities that are not in the NDL journal index. Users can search terms in the modern language for words changed historically. In addition, each search clarifies which Japanese university library holds the specific journal and desired article.
Most citations in this database for scholarly journal articles include author name readings in kana. These readings, especially those of little-known authors, may be otherwise impossible to find, since Waseda and NACSIS only contain the names of book authors and journal editors/institutions.
Comprehensive database for research on Japanese literature published from the 1920s to the present. It includes citations of any works on Japanese literature in books, journal articles, bulletins and annuals.
