Identify Journals of Interest

Strategies to identify journals that address topics of interest:

  1. Conduct topic searches in databases recommended for MFT and make note of the journal titles that regularly appear. 
    Recommended databases are linked to the JOURNAL ARTICLES & DATABASES tab of this guide.
  2. Ulrich's Periodicals Directory
    Detailed information on more than 300,000 periodicals of all types: academic and scholarly journals, e-journals, peer-reviewed titles, popular magazines, newspapers, newsletters, and more in 900 subject areas.  Does NOT provide access to journal content - describes journal, address of editor, cost, etc.  Use to verify journal title or search by broad categories to identify journal titles.

Journal Access at UNLV Libraries

UNLV Libraries journal subscriptions are primarily online, although some titles are only available in print format (or microfilm!).

If you know the journal title there are TWO WAYS to access the articles (illustrated below):

OPTION 1.   Use the link FIND E-JOURNALS BY TITLE on the UNLV Libraries webpage (#1 in image below).  You will find most here but IF NOT see Option 2 below.

The journal description pictured below provides information about the PAPER copy (Location = LASR), and a link to the ELECTRONIC copy (Location = Internet).

Volumes shelved in LASR must be requested using the button in the record display.  Use the LASR button next to the volume/year you need.  You can request multiple volumes, but must do so one at a time.
