Free Theological Resources for Students in the Majority World

I recently received the following question from a site visitor:
Could you also tell me about your site and others that you know of. I am helping start a Ph.D program at a large university in India that does not yet have many resources in theology. What online networks are you familiar with that could/would provide free resources to these students? ... These students are exactly the persons you are targeting. They will be extremely grateful not only for your site, but also for others you can recommend.
Ironically because so much of my time is spent placing resources on-line I am not as aware as I should be of other sites out there that are doing the same thing, but I think my starting point when searching for online resources would always be Tyndale House Library's periodical listing. Not only does this catalogue a vast number of theological journals but it also indicates those which are available online for free access. The listing also shows which journals are available through paid subscription via commercial on-line databases. This is usually, but not always, an indication that these journals cannot now be made freely available on the Web and that they are instead available only to students studying at subscribing educational institutions. The Tyndale House website also hosts the Tyndale Bulletin, digitised by Dr Ted Hildebrandt of Gordon College. Ted has also digitised the Bulletin for Biblical Research, whilst his own website is home to a huge collection of articles from a wide range of Evangelical journals.

Before I leave Tyndale House I must mention perhaps their most significant offering as far as scholarship in the developing is concerned, the STEP Project. In this video Dr David Instone-Brewer introduces and explains the aims of the Project:




I should also say that besides www.biblicalstudies.org.uk, my other sites under the www.theologyontheweb.org.uk banner are worth exploring:



That covers the free resources for on-line peer-reviewed theological journals I am aware of. Can anyone else add to the list or suggest other types of resources for Ph.D students? Please feel free to post links and descriptions in the comments.

An update on The Evangelical Quarterly Digitisation Project


I am making good progress with the digitisation of The Evangelical Quarterly. Having got up to the early 1980s I had the opportunity to purchase a run of issues from the 1960s that filled in the gaps in my collection for that decade, meaning that a number of articles which I already had permission to use could be put on-line. I have also corresponded with the new publisher of the journal, who has told me that he only has printed back-issues from 2009 onwards. This means that I should be able to offer digital copies up to the end of 2008 - subject to copyright approval from the authors of course. After that there will be a five-year delay before articles become available on-line.

The purchase of journals from a bookseller in the US, plus postage costs for borrowing copies from a UK library, bring the cost of the project to around £150 so far. Given the number of articles potentially available on-line at the completion fot he project this seems like good value for money. I will be taking a break from this for a few days now to work on another project.

You can see the progress so far here.
