The study covers the AHCI and the SSCI of the "Web of Science", and Scopus, and the European Reference Index for Humanities (ERIH), and the lists of the French AERES. The article presents the history of the project, the methodology established by the AA, the difficulties encountered in comparing the data. The first results reveal a broader coverage of the ERIH list for the human sciences and an over-representation of the Anglophone journals in the commercial databases throughout the disciplines. The objective of this work is to provide information about the contents of these databases, at a time when bibliometric tools are raising much discussion about their application in the field of the Social Sciences and the Humanities (SSH)
