The ATLA Religion Database provides information on topics such as biblical studies, world religions, church history, and religion in social issues—making it a valuable resource for studies in theology, as well as in social sciences, history and humanities. Journals are selected for inclusion according to their scholarly merit and scope.

ATLA contains over 1.75 million bibliographic records covering the research literature of religion in over 60 languages. Most coverage spans from 1908 to the present, while an ambitious retrospective indexing project provides citations of select titles back to their original publication date. Bibliographic records represent scholarship on major religions, faiths, denominations and languages.

As of May 2018, the Catholic Periodical and Literature Index is included in ATLA.

There are 3 options: ATLA, ATLAS, ATLAS Plus. ATLAS PLUS contains all of the 320+ full-text ATLASerials® (ATLAS®) journals and by purchasing an upgrade to ATLAS PLUS from ATLAS, sites will gain access to more than 120 additional full-text titles
