The digital collection

A partnership between the Voltaire Foundation and Liverpool University Press is making volumes from the series available online for the first time through Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment ONLINE.

The ebook collection offers a complete archive of all content published in the series between 1955-2016.

The digital text is fully searchable, and the online platform offers the ability for readers to save their own notes, highlights, and bookmarks on their own electronic copies and to export or print portions of each book.

We consider this an important, and very exciting, step forward for eighteenth-century scholarship, as it makes the full body of the important work published in the series more visible than ever for today’s readers, and ensures wider and more enduring accessibility for rising and future generations of students and scholars.”
– Professor Gregory Brown (General Editor, Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment)
