Welcome to The Online Bibliography of Ottoman-Turkish Literature, a free and extensive database of references to theses, books, articles, papers and projects relating to research into Ottoman-Turkish culture. Please visit the Turkish version of this site if your first language is Turkish.
The bibliography aims to serve as the principal reference for scholars working on Turkey and the Middle East, and for specialists studying other medieval and early/modern literatures. It is open also to record-submissions from visitors, and we invite all relevant scholars and researchers to post entries relating to their works. Such submissions become available publicly following review.
