The research conducted by the Free Seminar for the History of Ideas is focused on Portuguese magazines of ideas and culture of the 20th century as its study object. The overall purpose of this research is threefolds:
. the electronic and integral reedition of the chosen magazines (together with a monographic study, descriptive fields and analyticals, prepared using the Porbase criteria, and the reproduction of any relevant documentation);
. the study of the doctrine and the history of these periodicals and the cultural and political movements which they helped to create and consolidate;
. the preparation of databases, using the analyticals as a starting point, that provide the necessary information for organizing dictionaries of article authors, concepts, subjects, reception of authors and works, both for each individual current of thought and for the whole of the universe of magazines.
The work of research and edition has led to the creation of partnerships with other institutions presenting similar objectives. Such is the case of the permanent relationships with the National Library of Portugal and the Foundation Mário Soares (the SLHI’s webpage in the BNP portal and the Colecção de Revistas de Ideias e Cultura, published by the Foundation Mário Soares are a result of this). Another instance of this effort of collaboration can be found in the support given by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to the publication of the book Revistas, Ideias e Doutrinas – Leituras do Pensamento Contemporâneo, and, together with the National Culture Centre, to the DVD edition of O Tempo e o Modo.
