1914-1918: Online International Encyclopedia of the First World War

Since 2011, the international joint project “1914-1918-online. International Encyclopedia of the First World War” has been developing an English-language virtual reference work on the First World War. Published in October 2014, the online encyclopaedia is the result of an international joint project that provides a multi-perspective, publicly accessible knowledge base on the First World War. “1914-1918-online” is an important project in the context of the open access paradigm, as it promotes the free and unlimited distribution of content to individual users, search engines and reference services. The project was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). It was carried out by the Department of Modern History at the Friedrich Meinecke Institute of Freie Universität Berlin (FMI) in cooperation with the Center for Digital Systems (CeDiS) and the Bavarian State Library (BSB) under the direction of Prof. Dr. Oliver Janz (FUB).

The Consortium’s work aims to use knowledge about gender and security to end armed conflict and contribute to sustainable international peace. It is affiliated with the University of Massachusetts Boston and aims to promote the development of new knowledge on gender, armed conflict and security while bridging the gap between academic researchers and policy makers. To this end, it offers extensive bibliographic resources.

Selected Bibliography “Sexual Violence in Armed Conflict “

Over the past forty years, a vibrant interdisciplinary research landscape has developed that explores the complexities of sexual violence in armed conflict. The selected bibliography of the International Research Group “Sexual Violence in Armed Conflict” (SVAC), which is affiliated with the Hamburg Institute for Social Research, represents a unique selection of this research. The collection, which is coordinated by Regina Mühlhäuser, is constantly updated and currently comprises around 2,500 books, articles and selected NGO reports, mainly in English and to a much lesser extent also in German. In addition to current work in this field, this selective bibliography documents knowledge production since the 1970s.
