This document provides an overview of European databases and repositories for research output within the social sciences and humanities. This overview is a result of a survey conducted within the framework of European Network for Research Evaluation in the Social Sciences and Humanities (ENRESSH, www.enressh.eu). This overview can be used to identify data sources and/or possible collaborators for bibliometric studies focused on social sciences and humanities or other related topics. Similarly, the insights reported here can be used as a starting point for more detailed exploration of designs and contents of databases for research output within the social sciences and humanities. Finally, the findings can serve as a source of background information for discussions on research evaluation and/or research funding allocation suitable for the social sciences and humanities.
