Lias: Sources and Documents Relating to the Early Modern History of Ideas
Lias covers early modern intellectual history, with a focus on sources and documents. While it doesn't appear to have a wide circulation and the website (see here) is rather uninformative, the first 31 volumes (1974-2004) are available in fulltext. There is also an index volume available in PDF covering 1974-1998, which may make searching easier. I came across this because of a recent article that my professor published in the journal, so I don't know how widely this journal is used by intellectual historians. But the work in it looks superb, as far as I can tell from my brief experience.
UPDATE: APA, the publisher of Lias, has kindly provided further information on the journal, which can be found here. Many thanks for this assistance.
UPDATE (May 2010): Lias is now being published by Peeters.
