The Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA) is the world's most comprehensive bibliography of scholarly writing about the history of western art.

Journals Included in BHA (PDF, 308 K) BHA includes articles from over 1,200 journals. The link above leads to a list of names and ISSNs of each of those journals.

BHA includes all articles within the subject scope of BHA regardless of the subject focus of a particular journal. Thus, many of the journals on this list are covered partially, as only some of their articles are within BHA's scope.

BHA on the Getty Web site offers both basic and advanced search modules, and can be searched easily by subject, artist, author, article or journal title, and other elements. Note that the database search includes BHA (covering 1990-2007); the International Bibliography of Art (IBA), covering 2008 and part of 2009; and the Répertoire de la litterature de l'art (RILA), one of the predecessors of BHA, with records that cover 1975-1989.

The Getty Research Institute has no plans to continue the databases into the future. It is a static resource. There are not any plans for the RAA data currently because that data is owned by the French INIST, not by the Getty.
