From Columbia University's Center for Iranian Studies comes Encyclopaedia Iranica, a peer-reviewed encyclopedia dedicated to Iranian history and culture. The encyclopedia, which was launched in print in 1982 and has been online since 1996, is currently edited by Professor Elton Daniel and an international team of 38 scholars, including scholars of linguistics, central Asian art & archeology, and modern Central Asia. Meanwhile, the encyclopedia's entries are penned by over 1,000 scholars, providing readers with access to a breadth of expertise. Visitors can perhaps best explore the encyclopedia through the advanced search option, which includes an option to browse by topic (including biographies, flora and fauna, music, and material culture). As of this write-up, Encyclopaedia Iranica is in the process of developing subject tags to facilitate easier browsing - readers are invited to submit appropriate subject tags. Finally, visitors may want to check out the resources section, which features links to other digital projects that may be of interest, including the Afghanistan Encyclopedia, the Digital Persian Archive, and Women's Worlds in Qajar Iran, to name just a few.
