REL6013: Modern Analysis of Religion: Investigate an Academic Journal

This guide is designed to facilitate library research for course assignments.

1 - IDENTIFY ACADEMIC JOURNALS IN RELIGIOUS STUDIES

What peer-reviewed, scholarly journals are published in the field of Religious Studies?

To identify journals by subject, like Religious Studies, or by journal title/name you should use the one or both of the following resources:

2 - DOES FIU OWN A SPECIFIC JOURNAL?

To identify if FIU owns or has access to a particular journal title, you will use one or both of the following sources.

Recommended strategy: Specifically search the journal title/name in the Journal or Journal Title field instead of searching by keyword or anywhere searching.

3 - LOCATING ADDITIONAL JOURNAL INFORMATION

Analyzing the coverage of a topic by a specific journal is a great use of a subject database.  It will help you pinpoint relevant articles over many volumes,  issues and years.  This is much faster and more efficient than skimming individual issues of a journal. 

Search tip:  In a search of this type: one of your search terms/concepts will be your topic and the other will be the journal title.  For the journal title, change the search field to “Source or “Publication” rather than searching as a keyword.  Please don't hesitate to ask for assistance.

Searching for an article or review about a specific journal, can be difficult to isolate from reviews that appear in a specific journal.  Ask for assistance on this type of tricky search.
