What is PRISMA Database with HAPI Index?

PRISMA Database with HAPI Index - PRISMA Publicaciones y Revistas Sociales y Humanísticas is a comprehensive reference resource providing full-text scholarly journals in the social sciences and humanities for the interdisciplinary academic study of Hispanic and Latin America and the Caribbean Basin. Offering key titles indexed in the Hispanic American Periodicals Index (HAPI), a highly respected database produced by the Latin American Institute of the University of California, Los Angeles, PRISMA features Spanish, Portuguese, and English language content.

Articles in PRISMA examine all aspects of Hispanic Studies—from research on indigenous cultures past and present to current economic indicators to politics and society to Hispanic theatre. Coverage of subject areas is comprehensive and includes Anthropology, Business & Economics, History, Literature, Political Science and Sociology.

Full-text journals in PRISMA include América Latina Hoy, Boletín Americanista, Historia, Journal of Eastern Caribbean Studies, and Revista Hispánica Moderna. Content is updated monthly. PRISMA is continually growing, with new journals being added regularly.

PRISMA is most powerful when paired with the Hispanic American Periodicals Index (HAPI). Subscribers to both PRISMA and HAPI receive the benefit of in-depth indexing that directly complements the full-text content in PRISMA. This indexing is integrated directly into the PRISMA database for HAPI subscribers only.

HAPI covers more than 500 key social science and humanities journals published throughout the world and provides authoritative, worldwide information about Central and South America, Mexico, the Caribbean basin, the United States-Mexico border region, and Hispanics in the United States. It contains complete bibliographic citations to articles, book reviews, documents, original literary works, and other materials.

The Hispanic American Periodicals Index (HAPI) is available as a separate subscription through the Latin American Institute of the University of California, Los Angeles. For more information on HAPI or to request a subscription, please visit
