eHRAF World Cultures database contains information on present and past aspects of cultural and social life for a worldwide sample of societies.
Designed with cultural researchers in mind, eHRAF differs from other academic online databases that you may be used to.

The contents are organized by cultures and indexed at the paragraph level by HRAF anthropologists with unique subject identifier codes from the Outline of Cultural Materials (OCM), making it ideal for both exploratory, in-depth cultural research, and cross-cultural comparisons.

Substantive, peer-reviewed, and regularly updated, the Oxford Research Encyclopedias combine the speed & flexibility of digital with the rigorous
standards of academic publishing.

The OREs will grow to be a network of digital, discipline-centered encyclopedias covering all the major areas of research across the humanities, social sciences, and science fields. New subject areas are selected based on market research, where such anchoring reference sources are needed most.

The individual titles are free for the first two years of creation.  Each subject started at a different time so the dates are not set.
