HAPI indexes journals in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, and Italian, and it provides links when available to full-text sources, many of which are open access.

Content is in Spanish, Portuguese, and English. Publications in this database that are indexed in UCLA's Hispanic American Periodicals Index can also be searched by subject.
