About CPI for Publishers

The Christian Periodical Index (CPI) currently indexes more than 180 publications. New titles are considered for addition to the index based upon member, indexer, and publisher recommendations. The CPI Team evaluates titles throughout the year and bases its decisions on a written selection policy, copies of which are available on request from the CPI Team Coordinator.

CPI has grown steadily since its start and continues to achieve significant milestones:

1957 -- The first issue of CPI was published with indexing back to 1956

1999 -- Online and CD-ROM formats using the SilverPlatter platform were developed and hosted by BCR (Bibliographic Center for Research)

2009 -- CPI became available via EBSCOhost

2012 -- Record count surpasses 300,000

2012 -- Last print index (volume 35)

2017 -- Record count surpasses 400,000

If you would like to recommend a title to be a part of CPI's future, please email the journal title and its publication information to the CPI Team Coordinator.
