Finding Journals

 TIPS:

  1. Journals can be located in Discovery using the A-Z journal list. You can search for an exact journal title or for keywords. 
  2. Alternatively enter the Journal Title you are looking for in the Library Catalogue
  3. A selected list of Humanities Education journals are held in the Periodicals Collection on the ground floor of the Giblin Eunson library.  The print journal collection is shelved in alphabetical order.  Journal titles that start with an abbreviation (e.g. ALT-J: Association for Learning Technology Journal) are shelved at the beginning of the first letter in the title.
  4. Most journals are available electronically.

What is a scholarly peer reviewed journal?

Scholarly Journals

  • Contain articles written by and addressed to experts in a discipline.
  • Report original research or experimentation.
  • Cite their sources in footnotes or bibliographies.

Peer viewed (or refereed) journals

  • Only publish articles that have passed through a review process, and have been approved by scholars or experts.
  • Many databases provided the option to limit your search results to peer reviewed titles

Tip: You can use the UlrichsWeb : global serials directory to check if a journal is peer reviewed.

  1. Search for the journal (use the title-exact search)
  2. If it is a peer-reviewed, the soccer referee T-shirt icon will display next to the journal name.
