Philosophy

Journals

The Library collects both print and online philosophy journals with preference given to the online format when both are available.  You can find philosophy journals in a variety of ways.

  • Search for a known journal title in OskiCat or Melvyl and follow the link to journal website. If the journal (or desired issue) is not available online, you will need the library location and call number to retrieve the print edition.
  • Choose journal titles from a list of electronic journals arranged by subject. From E-Journal Titles A-Z, choose Category: Arts & Humanities; SubCategory: Philosophy.
  • Use the Citation Linker to retrieve the full text if you have a citation to a specific article in a journal.

Note: Using Philosopher's Index or another article database is a more efficient way to discover articles on a particular topic than browsing through individual journals issues.

Article Databases

These databases index journal articles, chapters of books, (and sometimes) books, and book reviews relevant to philosophy.  You can research a topic by searching for authors or subject terms relevant to your research. A few of these databases include the full text of the articles, but most of them use UC-eLinks to take you to the full-text of the article you are interested in. For articles not available online, UC-eLinks will search the Melvyl catalog for a print copy of the journal.
