Academic Journals: Step-by-Step

This covers the same information as the video above, but in step-by-step written instructions. To find academic journals in your discipline, follow these steps USING THE JOURNAL SEARCH BOX ABOVE:

  • Change the first field that says "title begins with" to "title contains all the words"
  • Type in your discipline, plus the word "research" to find journal titles.  For example, "communication research".  This will ensure that your results will be research-based journals, and the articles will have methodologies.
  • If there are no results, take out the word "research" and just search by discipline.
  • Look for titles that are available currently (for example, 1990-present).
  • Look for links to information about the journal. (For example, "Journal Information" or "About this Journal") This should provide the purpose, content and intended audience of journal.
