SHB SOCIOL & ANTHRO Courses: Browsing Journals

Dana Atwood

Browsing Scholarly Journals

Scholars or academics often stay up-to-date on research in their discipline by browsing key journals in the field.  This can also be a good way for students to see what current research is being done.  See the links below for some journal titles that are available through UW Green Bay Libraries subscriptions, as well as instructions how to look for more titles.  When you are searching for articles on a specific research topic, it will work better to search specific databases (see the "Finding Articles" tab), rather than browsing the individual journals shown here.

Finding Other Journals

To find other journals to browse, enter the discipline or subject you're interested in, followed by "-periodicals" in the Search@UW box.  For example: sociology-periodicals, or anthropology-periodicals, or social problems-periodicals, or families-periodicals, etc.

In the results that follow, you can scroll down the limits on the left side and click Journals under the Resource Type.  (You could also scroll down to select English under Language if you wish.)

If you know the title of a specific journal you're looking for, click the Journals A-Z link at the top of the Search@UW system and enter the title.
